Golden couple


The photos we are posting here are really touching. These were taken during the 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. Bernardino B. Tuazon and Mrs. Araceli G. Manalang, held middle of this year at the Merciful Redeemer Parish Church in Mississauga, Ontario.

The renewal of vows was attended by the couple’s relatives and friends, including a number of their high school classmates who were reunited after 60 years. Tatay Bernardino said in jest that his former classmates recognized him easily because he hadn’t changed a bit. He is now 80 years old and Nanay Araceli is 73.

Remy Tuazon is, of course, proud of her parents. “My father worked for Philippine National Railways for 45 years. Kaya alam na alam niya ang buhay-riles. He is hardworking, kind, intelligent, and always ready to help other people.”

Remy continues: “My mother, on the other hand, was a dressmaker. She’s also hardworking and I remember how she really attended to us, her children, when we were young. Because we only had one set of uniform each that time, she would see to it that we were neat, para daw hindi halatang  mahirap.”

The golden couple has been living in Canada for years, with daughter Lourdes and her family (see below):

We would like to congratulate them on this milestone and, at the same time, thank them for bringing into this world, on September 7, 1961, our wonderful classmate, Remy.

    Hi Remy,

    Ang sweet pa rin nila, ‘no? Maraming maiinggit, for sure. Congrats sa kanila kahit late na. At syempre pa, happy birthday to you, pati na rin kina Eva at Gil.

    Mwah! Love you pa rin (kahit nawala ka noong huling gabi. Hmp!).

    Thanks, Lito, for the greetings and for posting my parents’ pictures of their 50th (golden) wedding anniversary. Pasensiya na kung nawala man ako noong huling gabi at least naka-attend naman sila. Next time babawi ako and siguro by that time kayang-kaya ko ng mag-commute mag-isa. Thanks again and take care always.

    Dear Rems,
    Sorry for not greeting you on time, haven’t got enough time to visit our site. Wishing you the happines you truly deserve. Congrats also to your mom and dad. Sana tayo rin ganun ano? Silver ka na rin ba? 27 na kasi kami ng wife ko e. (Tama si Ate Guy – mayroong HIMALA – biro mo yun 27 na pala kami hindi ko naramdaman kasi hinahanap ko yung expiration date, hindi yata nailagay e.) Congrats and my best wishes to you and your family,

    Same here with Gil B and other September celebrants, mabuhay po kayong lahat.

    Ok lang Larry and thank you for the greetings for me and for my parents. Silver na rin (28 yrs) na – hindi HIMALA yun ibig lang sabihin YOU LOVE your family. BE HAPPY rin, lalo pa nga na sa mga anak and sa mga apo bawing-bawi na. Ingat and GOD BLESS.
