And that heart belongs to Sonny Gregory A. Aquino. Being together from 1981, they were officially married on June 17, 1984.

Conchita was a faithful woman who loved the Lord and her family very much. She was very hardworking, loved to garden, play cards and dance. Also being part domestic goddess, her children say some of her best dishes were sweet and sour spareribs and pig’s feet soup.

She mothered everyone and never shied away from being there for those who needed support in one way or another. We will miss her smile, her laugh, her sage advice, her angelic voice, her authentic cooking and her bubbly personality. Her memory will live on in all of us.
