Both just arrived from school.  Melinda, who was busy cooking, turned to see them.  “I am top 4 in our class! While Angelo is first honor,” Angelica said. Angelica, 14 years old, is currently in 2nd year highschool in Jacobo Z. Gonzales Memorial High School, while Angelo, 10 years old, is a grade 3 student in Pagkakaisa Elementary School. Melinda showered her children with hugs and kisses. Aside from Angelo and Angela, Melinda has two other children named Jefferson and Wilson who are also performing well in school.
