On January 7th, 2011 a long time patron of the South Bay Filipino Martial Arts club, my mother-law & friend "Lola to kids" Elvira "Chris" Panis was laid to rest. She had a battle with cancer. She was a survivor of WW-2 being teenager during the war living in Dingras, Illocos Norte, Luzon, Commonwealth of the Philippines. She had supported the club, cheered on her grandchildren and son-in when they fought in tournaments, and performed at south land community events. Her service was was well attended by friends and family, it standing room only at the chapel. Large gathering was held at the grave side. She was carried to grave by four old warriors and two best friends. May she rest in peace.
