The Sho Family

It's a very nice tropical day in Na Luum Ca. The birds are singing, everything seems to be peaceful in my family. My father Antonio Sho, my mother Eugenia Paquiul Sho and my eight brothers and two sisters Thomas, Benito, Geraldo, Hilario, Felicita, Carlos, myself German, Melania, Severiano and Placido Sho all live together in Na Luum Ca. My grandmother Otillia Rash Paquiul, my mom's mother, is staying with us now, because my grandfather died and we don't want her to be far from our family.
