Ramon Magsaysay & Serging Osmena

Dear Leo,

As I've heard in your radio program, please consider this as my contribution to the memories of former Pres. Ramon Magsaysay Sr. Attached herewith is an old picture of the former President together with some personalities, which was taken in 1957 at Arcus, Sapangdako (maybe still part of Guadalupe during that time).
Actually, tulo ra gyud akong nailhan sa picture as follows:
1.) 2nd from left, the oldest person in the group was my grand father Mr. Hipolito Labra Sr., one of the political leaders, the host of their dinner a day before the death of the former
2.) 2nd from right, in barong tagalog, was Sergio "Serging" OsmeƱa Jr.
3.) 3rd from left, in coat & tie, the former President Ramon Magsaysay Sr.
A cousin of ours based in the US right now gave me a reproduced copy of this picture ug ako dayon gi scan para ma preserve kay usa man pud kini sa mga priceless nga handumanan sa among Lolo Hipolito with the former President.
Hinaut nga makatabang kinig dako ug mahimong parte sa kasaysayan.
Thank you very much.
