MANILA, Philippines —  Last Nov. 21, Raul “Ronnie” and Menchu Concepcion celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. The celebration started with a mass, then renewal of marriage vows in the church they donated to the community in Sumulong Highway, Antipolo. Reception followed in their rest house “La Veranda” in Antipolo.
Menchu was hesitant to celebrate the occasion since her husband Ronnie is no longer in a condition to socialize and enjoy parties. But Menchu wanted to show to her friends the beautiful church named “San Pedro Calungsod Parish” that they donated to the community in Antipolo. The church is a way of giving back to the Lord all the blessings He has been giving the family. She is also grateful Ronnie is still with them, as he celebrates his 88th birthday this December.

Menchu wrote a journal titled ‘Giving Back’ which she gave to her friends. It is a journal of her personal experience on taking care of Ronnie.

RAUL “RONNIE”
