It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 11. To all mothers, Happy Mother’s Day!
Did you know that sometime in the 80s Regal Films could come up with a special movie? It's Mother Lily Monteverde's (Regal matriarch) way of paying tribute and homage to a very important and dear person in our life, our Mother. It became a yearly event and their initial offering was in 1981 when they released “Oh My Mama,” a Maricel Soriano-William
starrer. Soon, it became an annual tradition for the movie company. It goes on for the next three years. The studio released the following --- 1982, “Mother Dear,” 1983, “To Mama with Love” and finally, in 1984, “Dear Mama.” Martinez
