she was a guest in one cultural event in Balay Kalinaw where my amateur self played violin as intermission. i was shaking with an involuntary vibrato. even i knew my performance was awful. but she applauded when i finished and told me, “that was wonderful! wonderful!” she reminded me of a lola so proud of her apo no matter what.
i will always remember her kindness in that brief moment i met her.
none other than Susan Calo-Medina was that ‘proud lola’.
