Opilases mark diamond milestone

Quezon City-Philippines

Domingo and Rosalinda (nee Ambat) Opilas, parents of Rachel Opilas-Oberes of Adelaide SA, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with family and friends 2 June, the couple reiterating that love thrives through the years.

Rachel joined her siblings – Rowena Fernandez, Darvin, Rosmin Sebastian, Rimini Guway and Darius – in Manila to ensure that the event became a memorable occasion.

Assisting them were children- in-law Mario Oberes, Lito Sebastian, Chang-ay Guway and Raquel, their children and grandchildren, who danced, sang and played music during the night.

Those unable to attend, including children-in-law Nelson Fernandez and Gina Opilas, sent video messages from East Timor, Canada and Australia, which deeply moved the honorees.

The couple married 2 June 1957 at Sta Teresita Church, Quezon City after meeting in Cavite where Mr Opilas was stationed with the Philippine Navy.

Relatives from Cavite, Ifugao and Sydney joined the celebration, held at Myons French & Mediterranean Restaurant in Quezon City.

Mr Opilas singing their theme song, Perry Como’s ‘Til the end of time’, proved to be the evening’s highlight, the ditty also dedicated to the couple by their eldest daughter, Rowena, with her own rendition.

Meanwhile, an Opilas nephew, former Qantas payroll officer and sports person Renato Agullana Opilas, celebrated his birthday 29 May in Sydney.
