Golden Wedding Anniversary, 2007
Our ninong and ninang ( primary sponsors) during our golden wedding anniversary four years ago, are now both 87 years old.
Our ninang is still strong and walks everyday to church about 1/2 km uphill with her caretaker. She has a clear mind and still enjoy life to the fullest, since I see her on several social events here in Boac during the last four months. She is still involved with her beach resort business and coconut plantations. She is a widow, no children, but had adopted one of her nephews.
On the other hand our ninong appears to be weakening and lethargic. For the last three weeks, he has not visited us. It used to be his routine to drop by for coffee every Wednesday morning before he goes to the bank in downtown Boac. We asked his caretaker what is happening. The caretaker told us, he has no appetite and just take Ensure. He is lethargic and shows some signs of senility. Our Ninong is also a snowbird. He has 4 children and several grandchildren all residing in US. He has decided to quit snowbirding beginning this year, since he gets better care here in Marinduque.
Today is Wednesday. If he does not drop by, it is time to visit him.
Macrine and I are praying for the continued health of our ( both are 87-year old)) ninang and ninong here in Marinduque.
