The Grandfather

LOLO: THE GRANDFATHER

Elders are respected and revered. The grandfather heads the hierarchy in the family structure and may be likened to an old tribal chief. His advice and opinions on a wide variety of matters are sought by the younger family members. He takes great interest in his grandchildren and may sponsor a favourite grandchild through college in Manila or even abroad. The role of ceremonial figurehead is maintained, hut this time over a larger fiefdom.
