Hi Papa,

As you know, ate Viv and emil got married yesterday. Like Ate Chris said, it was an intimate wedding... only immediate family. everyone spoke at the wedding, everyone tried getting me to talk but I couldn't. I couldn't help but wish you were still with us so you could walk Ate Viv down the aisle, and it made me sad. But Kuya gave her away. :)

Emma was extra cute in her fluffy dress. Miggy was looking all G.Q. hehehhe

I know you and all our relative had a view of everything yesterday. You would' ve liked the food. But there was no rice! Hehehhe

I love you daddy and we miss you.
