Just wanted to greet mi Padre, Señor Bartolome Arnaiz y Rivera, feliz compliaños! Born on August 24, he was named by his parents after San Bartolome, whose feast falls on the 24th day of the month.
A proud Ilonggo but very humble man, soft spoken and during his younger years, this mestizo was a tall, well-built looker, guapo si Nonoy. He’s the hardest working man I have ever known in my life.
I’ll never forget how he takes good care of his hair, which is, unfortunately – all gone now. He just turned 72.
