Batchmates, you will be pleased to know that Anselmo, Cora and family as well as Letty (nee Mercado) are safe and well. Except for the sweltering heat and the greyish sky, they are not severely affected by the inferno in the state of Victoria that has so far taken over 180 people (with more missing and unaccounted for). The fire is still raging in about 23 suburbs with no rain expected today.
They wish to thank you all for your concern.
On a lighter and happier note, Anselmo and Cora's daughter, Grace is soon to wed Rodney Guinto of the USA in November in Melbourne. You may wish to know more about this happy event so here is a link: http://www.gracerodney.weddingwindow.com/
P.S. Benruben is well.
