Today is All Saints Day, tomorrow is All Souls Day. I remember my parents, Papa Bienvenido "Ben" Oplas Sr., and Mama Consuelo Oplas.
Mama died on Sept. 3, 2015 at 81 years old, Papa followed her on March 9, 2017, just two weeks before he would turn 90 years old.
Below, at Mama's burial in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental. We are five siblings, our eldest, Manong Nestor, died around 2007. From left, me (4th in family), Manang Bebeth (2nd), Neneng Marycris (3rd) and Bonifacio "Bobong" (5th, youngest).
