My fellow Asuncion relatives, just saw this post of cousin Elcee’s FB. Elcee is our second cousin (my generation though Elcee and her sibling Architect K Digno are younger). Their dad K. Digno Asuncion is the first cousin of our mom (generation of Gracia Asuncion Carrillo Rojas & Corazon Asuncion Carrillo Galang). Atty K Digno’s dad, Kenerino (married to Leonor Manas) is the sibling of our grandmother Guia Asuncion Carrillo (same generation as Consuelo Asuncion Intengan, Adonis Asuncion, Jacobo Asuncion, Rodolfo Asuncion, ..). Malou & brother Andres “Jun”Asuncion’s line comes from Adonis, Sor Marissa Asuncion & sis Sor Naty come from Jacobo, Grace – Ann Grey – Monina – Ronivic – Rollie came from Dr Ronnie Asuncion, whose dad Rodolfo (married to Monica Gerona) is the brother of our grandmother Guia Asuncion.

Our father, Atty. K. Digno M Asuncion, passed away peacefully in Manila today, May 12th – just as his wife and 5 children were taking Leone Giulio to the crematorium in Italy. He was surrounded by his loving in-laws and grandchildren. It is bittersweet that we lost 2 people we love within a week of each other. But now we know that we have 2 angels in heaven who are toasting us right now with their fav beer. We love you Dad. You taught us so much. You loved us so much.
To Elcee, Ding and Families:
We would like to express our sincere condolences on the passing away of your father Atty. K. Digno Asuncion. Tears on earth, joy in heaven.

Thank you Ed and Jun! Dad was a great man and well worth our pride. I only saw this message now – my apologies.
My Manas cousins have been in touch with me. You’ll be interested to know that through the marriage of Leonor Manas/Lola Leny and Kenerino Asuncion/Lolo Ino, the Besas became cousins through both my Manas and Asuncion sides.
And Ed, if Manolo Rojas is related to you, his family is also related to the Besas twice over through the Camara-Rojas marriage. I must rope you in to coffee or tea with my newfound Manas historian cousins when I am in Manila next.
