The Internet is being ripped apart by Alex Tizon's piece, "My Family's Slave," published in The Atlantic's June 2017 issue (and online on May 17). While some concerned folks are calling for charges to be brought against the Tizon family for their part in the story, others are lauding the way the writer's family treated their "Lola" during her latter years.

None of us outsiders will ever fully understand Lola Eudocia Tomas Pulido's relationship with the family, but here is a peek at how they were before this media storm hit, just months after Alex himself died.

In 2011, Tizon's sister, Maria Tizon-Huskey uploaded a slideshow tribute for Lola after her death. The seven-minuter featured photos of Lola laughing with the family, attending birthdays and other celebrations. In the background, a song composed by the Tizon grandchildren, which even referenced her favorite show, Wowowee. Some of the lyrics goes:

She was like a mother to my father.

Take care of her Father.

She would make a perfect angel for you.

She was a perfect little lady.

I asked my father what's one thing you remember,

He said, she loved us unconditionally

She even laughed at the horror movies.
