Benny, the youngest son of Fe Glipo of Matnog, Sorsogon left home to work in Bacon District in Sorsogon City. She even accompanied her son to the terminal. However, after several days, Aling Fe found out that Benny did not reach his place of work.

The worried mother searched for her sons, and this ended when she found a body, whom she believed to be Benny, at a funeral home.

Aling Fe grieved the loss of her son and buried him. Condolences poured in for the family and even on Benny’s social media account. And that was where Benny learned of his death – on Facebook. Thus he decided to go home. It turned out that Benny found a job elsewhere.

Believing it was Benny’s ghost at first, Aling Fe’s grief turned to joy after realizing her son isn’t dead after all.

Now, the family wonders who they buried.
