Never Underestimate An Old Man With A DD-214 Who Was Born In May Shirt, hoodie, tank top
Angeline and Lola Natalia
Lola is 71-year-old Natalia Untalan who has lovingly taken on the task of being ‘the other mother’ to them. Angeline and her older brother Angelo stay in Cabanatauan with their parents, but it is lola who looks after them as both parents are at work full-time. The siblings are so devoted to their grandmother that they still sleep beside her (and lola has to endure the occasional bedwetting!).
Summer vacations are usually spent at uncle Michael Untalan’s Grace Residences home. Pre-pandemic, Michael and the children loved spending time swimming in the condo’s pool, which would be capped by a food treat at Grace Mall. This year, they spent more time at Grace Residences because their online classes enabled them to attend school remotely.
Some children are not as lucky as Angeline who has the company and love not only of her mother but also those of her grandmother.
Precious Ann Guevarra, eight, lost her mother three years ago. The past five years had been most challenging for Precious Ann and her two siblings. At age three, she had to witness her mother battling cancer. At five, she lost her. Adjusting to a motherless life, with a grieving father, had been very difficult for her and her siblings. To help them cope, the children’s extended families welcomed them into their homes on the weekends and during school breaks. Precious Ann’s favorite was weekends at Field Residences with Aunt Ellen dela Cruz, her mom’s older sister.
On Mother’s Day weekend, Precious Ann wrote her mom: “Happy Mother’s Day in heaven. Don’t worry about me, Mimi and Dada are taking care of me. I wish you were here. I love you.”
