Scene city | Angel and Thelma together for 50 years

SOME say marriages are made in heaven but some people may not believe it is so. Yet, when we see that couples like Angel and Thelma Derla are proof that the marriage they have enjoyed with their children is really made in heaven, we know that nothing can go wrong and all is well.

Angel and Thelma renewed their wedding vows during a Eucharistic Celebration at the San Pedro Cathedral on Jan. 6, 2018.
Jan. 6 was the date Angel and Thelma chose for their wedding 50 years ago. And because the marriage was blessed with loving children who have achieved their goals in life, being happily married for 50 years deserved a celebration.
Angel and Thelma enjoy good health and travel anywhere they like to relax and see the world in their senior years.
