While we were so focused on the news over the typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng, this is a shocking news from VWBro Benny Ty about the murder of Bro. Francis Aytona of Manila Mt. Lebanon Lodge No. 1.
Let us pray for his repose and immediate apprehension of the perpetrators and resolution of this case. A very sad day indeed for Manila-Mt. Lebanon and MD-NCR-A.
Details for the wake is still being arranged.
