GMA News Online reports that the viral Facebook black-and-white photo featuring Lola Aurelia Matias with a missing person flyer of her husband, Lolo Luis, pinned to the back of her dress has led to a heartwarming reunion. The social media buzz helped reunite them on Tuesday, November 22. Lolo Luis, who suffers from memory lapses, had been missing for two weeks. A concerned caller had spotted Lolo Luis at LRT's Quirino station. Relatives fetched Lolo Luis and brought him home.

 

It's all because Facebook user Reddie Js, a street photography enthusiast, posted the photo on Monday (November 21). He asked everyone to post it on their Facebook walls, too. The photo was shared 53,760 times.

 

Reddie Js told GMA News Online that he had "chanced upon Lola Aurelia sitting at the corner of Buendia Avenue and Roxas Boulevard."  He said, "Nung makita ko yung pinned flyers sa damit niya naawa ako sa status ni Lola that she will go to that extent na maglagay pa s’ya ng ganun to find Lola. Pero sabi ko din ang galing. Love n’ya tlga si Lolo (When I saw the flyers pinned on her dress, I felt bad for her. She had to go to that extent to find him. But I found it amazing. She really loves him)."

 

Reddie Js then approached Lola Aurelia and asked for a copy of the flyer pinned to her dress. He then asked for permission to take her picture and post it on Facebook. Lola Aurelia agreed.

    Taga Channel 2 daw kasi si Julius Babao (yung show niya sa DZMM ang naging daan para magkita yung dalawang matanda) kaya medyo iwas ang GMA 7. Bawal daw yun sa rules of broadcasting nila. LOL. rnrnAnyway, yung newsworthy yata para kay sensei eh yung mga balitang may patayan, mga artistang nag-aaway, lovelife ni PNoy at iba pang nakasanayan na.

    whatever the story is... what's important is that they are reunited. It is sad to lose someone dear to you so the fact that lola got reunited with lolo is something to talk about to inspire us to help in whatever way and means we can.rn

    It's senti with a dose of human interest angle to the story. Mixed reactions are expected pag ganyan ang reporting sa istorya, but then again, what do you expect from the biggest news network in the land? They're not the BBC for crying out loud. The biggest network in the land panders to the LCD, and i don't mean the tv, either

    @senseirnrnAny reunion story, be it between old couples, among family members, among friends is important and personal to the involved parties. It may not be newsworthy to be talked about by all.rnrnWhat makes this story newsworthy is how the role of social media (facebook) and the kindness of users (which is unusual, since we are used to reading cyberbullying) have helped this two senior people find each other.rnrnI don't know what childhood trauma or super negative experience you've encountered as a person to make you so jaded about love.rnrnIn a sea of negative news featured in Spot (or anywhere else), maybe we forgotten how reuniting with your one true love in the time of facebook can be nourishing to know.rnrnAmen. Lol.

    Gujab Reddie! Tama yan. Gamitin ang teknolohiya para tumulong sa iba. Hindi yung ginagamit itong armas para manakit at manira.
