When my late brother Manolo Espiritu died years back (more than 20 years ago), my sister in-law Bella Espinosa Espiritu decided to start a new life in Manila with her children. She moved in with her sister Rose Espinosa (married to George Velasco) and continued her baking business there. It was a home based and she made special order cakes and pastries, and once in awhile she accepted catering for small functions. She raised her three children well – Cholo, Chula, and Peter Paul. They are now all professionals. Except for Chula, her two boys are now married.

And since it was a long weekend last Halloween, they decided to have a Espinosa-Espiritu Family Reunion at the house of the Velasco. It was a sentimental reunion as it was the first time that they were able to gather together despite most of them have moved there. I guess the traffic and busy schedules kept them apart. But Bella, who is now retired from the baking business, praised God for this opportunity to gather and see her immediate loved ones. They planned to go back to Zamboanga City and have a grand family reunion soon.
