Mylo's Mom said...

Hi Bishop Mylo Vergara! My son's name is also Mylo Vergara. My mom said that nicknaming him as Mylo brings back memories of the son of her dear friend (& malayong kamag-anak) from Fairview, who is also a priest. Mama said that at least my son will get good 'vibes' having named after a priest--now a bishop. Congratulations po!
