Best Tatay (Father), Am I?

Today is Father's Day. What's it in store for me, especially from my children?

The five fathers in our family
The Fathers in our family: ltr-Papa Tipoy, Toto Jun, Papa Almon, Papa Dondon, and Tatay Gilbor

I have six children. Four of them are married. They've their job to support their family. Only my 2nd daughter and the youngest daughter are single. We've raised them through thick and thin. At least we've not failed them. We've sent them to school. We've raised them according to the "nurture and admonition of the Lord".

In this special day for all fathers, our children have shown their thoughtfulness by sharing me inspiring  messages and words of gratefulness. My wife, Rebing and I are so happy about it. We've nothing to give them in return but to be proud and be happy and to continue or to edify our family relationship for we believe that family could be together forever.

Our children's have their own unique way in expressing themselves on how happy. grateful they are as their father. The following pictures so expressed them.

From our 3rd elder daughter, An An who is working abroad:

From our youngest daughter, Gigi who is an instructional manager in ALS:

From our 2nd elder daughter, Gingging who is a computer cafe owner: "Happy fathers day sa tanan na tatay! Gil Camporazo, Mon Tolones, Greg Camporazo, Stephen Jaud, Gilbor Camporazo Jr."

From our eldest son, Dondon who is a farmer and small business man via messenger: "Happy fathers day tay"

From our daughter-in-law, Inday Carissa, wife of our youngest son who is a computer programmer:
