    I saw pres. cory aquino’s funeral cortege with my very own eyes. In fact I just came home.
    My family and I stood beneath south super highway and waited for almost an hour for the convoy. It wasn’t a long wait since most people have been standing there since 6 am.

    I remember watching President Roh Moo Hyun’s funeral on KBS World and couldn’t help comparing how different both funerals were held. His funeral looked so organized and extremely solemn and it seemed like most people who went to downtown Seoul were old people. Whereas, in Cory’s funeral, all sorts of people were out in the streets. I guess I’m being biased but Cory’s funeral looked like a wild party compared to his. Actually, his funeral reminded me of Sharon Cuneta’s movie “crying Ladies”. I won’t elaborate, but yeah…

    Sayang..I wasn’t able to attend Pres. Cory’c funeral but my eyes are glued on TV the whole day.Most of the people there wanted to thank Cory for the sacrifices and love she had shared to all of us.The Filipinos are worth dying and living for as they say and I believe in that too. As I see thouasands or even millions of people gather on her funeral,I see hope on the future of us Filipinos^^

    together with 2 relatives and a neighbor ,welined up for 2 and a half hours to pay our last respects to president aquino in greenhills. we parked our vehicle in robinson’s galleria an dlineup at the corner of edsa across the poea building. we noticed rich people alighting from the their suvs, the not so rich from buses and jeepneys, the hakot crowds of politicians with signs an dplacards like’ condolence from vice mayor so and so and senator manny villar’also queueing. i noticed a group of people making sign languages, they were deaf and mute also wanting to see and view the remains of tita cory. we got in at past 4, at the entrance you would be greeted by her grandsons and daughter ballsy. on one side of the gym, you have the set-up of ‘the buzz’ , boy abunda and kris were starting their show.
    president cory looked good and at peace, she wore a yellow gown, rosary on her hands and her make-up was done by juan sarte-a most sought after make-up artist in commerials etc.

    on our way out we bumped into senator francis pangilinan and sharon, the two little girls and kc, mayor lim and senator noynoy.
    i felt relieved that i had done what is to be done as a filipino after visiting her in lsgh.
    the next 2 days found us glued to our tv sets watching the necrological services and the funeral. president cory may not have been the best president we ever had nor the most intelligent but she was true, honest and sincere. she never enriched herself while in office. it was so refreshing to hear kris say that the latter pays for the former’s cellphone account.

      hi ellen! i was also glued to ANC’s live streaming and sometimes to the ABS-CBN streaming on justinTV… and i watched the whole service from morning until everything was over… i listened to the homilies as well… too bad i didn’t get to see the necrological services but i had read Teddy Locsin’s eulogy on jessica zafra’s blog and wow…

    Not only that we should consider Tita Cory’s sincerity but her simplicity as well..My sister and some of those who lined at Pres. Cory’s wake had the chance of being appreciated and accommodated well by the Aquino family..They were so simple my sister said..”Pasensya na po nabasa po sa ulan..thank you”..And they would repeat those words again and again to those who wanted to pay their last respects to tita Cory..even Josh would say “Thank you po”..that’s how appreciative and accomodating they were..Hindi nakapanghihinayang na pumunta doon^^

    I do not know that you have a woman so wonderful. Really unfortunate when she might lose and honestly share sad
