Well Wishes from Family and Friends
It is said that our parents are our first teachers having raised us patiently from childhood to adulthood. They have been our source of comfort, support and inspiration. Richard and Maya are truly blessed with such wonderful parents and I’m quite sure when it comes to knowing what marriage is all about, they always have a word or two to share to their children. We would like to call on the Mother of the Bride, Mrs. Teresita dela Rosa to say a few words of wisdom and Best Wished to our newlyweds
Mga anak, lagi ninyo tatandaan na importante sa bawat relasyon lalo na sa mga mag-asawa ang pag-uusap. Huag palalalain ang isang bagay na hindi pinag-uusapan mabuti. Huag pairalin ang pride tulad nangyari noon Pasko. Kung sino may kasalanan, mag sorry. Huag matutulog na hindi nagkaka-ayos. Kapit-bisig mga anak lagi, mahal ko kayo. Richard, huag mo papabayaan ang anak ko. Mahal na mahal ka ni Maya.
Richard nods his head.
Thank you so much Madam for that inspiring message. And now we would like to call on the Father of the Groom, Don Roberto Lim to say a few words of wisdom to our newlyweds.
Maya, welcome sa pamilyang Lim. Noon pa man pamilya na ang turing namin sa yo. Maraming salamat sa malaking pagbabago ni Richard. Sabi nga nang esposa ko, kaw ang nagpabalik sa mga ngiti sa amin si Ricardo. Noon pa man alam na namin meron nang pagtingin si Ricardo sa yo. Di pa lang niya iyon na realize. Pero kami noon bday pa lang ni Abby alam na namin. Lalo na ng mama mo, kaya noon pa man sinabi na niya kay Ricardo “don’t lose her”. Mga anak keep the love burning in your hearts. Bigyan agad ninyo kami ng bagong apo ha…

Thank you Madam, and thank you all…lets us again give them a big hand for such wonderful and meaningful speeches.
Lastly, may we call the bestfriend of the bride and groom. Ms. Rafi Alcantara.
Chard finally, you open your heart again, I know wherever Alex now, she is happy to see you and the kids happy again. You know what, the first time I saw you after 5 years. Alam ko may nabago sa yo. Hindi ko lang alam kung ano iyon. All I know eh you smile so often then. Hindi ko alam na si Maya pala ang may dahilan ng mga iyon. Maya, my new bestfriend, thank you for everything you did to you Chard and kids. You are truly one in a million amazing woman I ever met. I still remember the first time I saw you, akala mo isa ako threat sa yo. Noon una hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit but as days goes by, I know the reason why. But you never show me any bad attitude, naging mabait ka pa rin sa akin. Deep inside that moment sabi ko sana ma realize ni Chard na kaw iyon tamang babae puede niya ipalt kay Alex. And I’m glad he did see it. Dahil kung hindi ako ang magmumulat sa mga mata niyang singkit. Hahaha. Isa ka rin sa malaking factor sa amin ni Charlie. Kung di dahil sa yo, baka I never felt the happiness am feeling right now with the man I love. Alam ko kaw rin ganun…I wish you both happines and good life ahead. I love you both.
