To reach 80 years is a blessing. And that was why Greg, together with his wife and relatives, prepared a big celebration for his Mom. The party was set for 150 guests at Astoria Plaza. They prepared many surprises for her and the celebrant ended up teary-eyed, touched at everyone's love and attention.
I had a grand time, too. Mecielo and Greg and their kids are the most wonderful people. And they always make me feel part of their family.
Here's sharing some photos from last night's party.
Greg's Mom, Claudia, turned 80.

The great grand kids were there, too!
Seated with her older sister (in red).
I really love the tenderness of this moment.
Rocco, Greg's nephew, arrived after his rehearsal at GMA 7.
He's one of GMA 7's Starstruck winners. Such a nice, courteous boy.

These little girls were the center of attention. Cute!
Of course, I cannot not post this picture of Mecielo (with Greg's relatives)
who looked absolutely stunning in her blue backless dress.
