It was one year ago when Flor Vendiola, co-owner of FV Foods and husband to Mel Galeon, her co-owner of the food empire that they founded succumbed to heart failure and unexpectedly left us all in mourning. This month, her husband Mel dedicated a mass in her honour and held a one-year death anniversary dinner. The dinner was attended by family and friends who braved the inclement weather to pay their respects and to show their support to Mel, to FV Foods and her family. It was a very touching tribute, specially when Mel spoke, and was unable to control his tears. It was a fitting tribute to a loving wife and a well-loved community leader.
