FC: Our Family History | "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." | The De La Cruz Family
1: Location: Teresa Heights Date: 2 January 2009 The De La Cruz Family Reunion
2: This was a usual gathering for the De La Cruz family. But this was the first one I attended that I remember because the last time we attended was when I was a toddler.
3: The reason for the change in venue is that my grandfather is too weak to travel to Kalookan from Novaliches. So everybody was in the house. It was a small house so I was surprised to see that everybody was being accomodated.
4: De La Cruz Kids
5: When you look at the kids, you can just imagine how much people must be in the house at that moment. In the next pages, you will see the different families.
6: The ladies
8: The Parental Generation
9: This reunion had a sad story just five days after. My grandfather died. What we noticed in all of his photos since Christmas the year before was that he wasn't able to keep his attention even though he has good concentration skills since he loves crossword puzzles.
10: But a few days after the reunion, my grandfather died. He was 79 years old. An eerie story came up during his wake. Apparently, he told one of my dad's cousins that he was ready to go since he already saw us all. But what's eerier was that no one knew who he talked to.
12: Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories.
13: The Host family for the day.
