TLE – HE Department with Mrs. Fe Lo, Head Teacher VI sang the favorite song of the retiree, “Guhit ng Palad” followed by a video presentation which was a compilation of the good old days spent by the retiree with friends, family, and co-educators.

The message of love from Mrs. Erlinda Miao, former TLE-HE Department Head (also a retiree) made the tribute heart-warming and nostalgic as Mrs. Erlinda Miao  shared the happy, fun, and sad memories they had together.

One of the daughters of the retiree left the audience teary-eyed. “She is the most amazing mother for us. Her love for us is unequaled. She did a great sacrifice in taking care and sending all of us to school all by herself .Given the chance to live again, I still want this woman to be my mother.”, Stephanie proudly quipped.               

The retiree, Ate rose to everyone, proudly and lovingly thanked everyone for the celebration which she called a gift. “Gusto ko Masaya ang pag reretire ko kaya hindi tayo iiyak dapat.”
