A Tribute to OUR Dear Madam Cory Aquino

Who she was, she is and she will always be…

A passionate and caring wife to Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino.
A loving and understanding mother to her children.
A sweet and thoughtful Lola to her grandchildren.
A trustworthy friend.
A creative artist, a painter.

A religious and meek Christian.
A prayerful and grateful fellow.
A devoted prayer and democracy advocate.
A woman of prayer, dignity, principles, integrity and empowerment.

An influential people power icon.
A considerate and supportive politician.
The first lady president in the Philippines and in Asia.
Our former president.

Famous. Rich. Loving. Kind. Blessed. Grateful.

Farewell to OUR Beloved Former President… Mrs. Corazon Cojuangco – Aquino…

Your works, words and service to mankind, your legacy will live forever in the hearts of the Filipino as well as those whom you have touched their hearts and changed their lives.

As she joins her Creator in Heaven… her death.

At the age of 76 on August 1, 2009, 3:18 a.m., at the Makati Medical Center, Mrs. Mrs. Corazon Aquino died of cardiopulmonary arrest after complications of colon cancer. She was diagnosed with the disease in March 2008 but kept up public appearances this year. A religious Catholic, she regularly attended weekend Holy Mass until shortly before being admitted to hospital in late June.

All Roman Catholic dioceses had started requiem masses for Aquino, after they held "healing masses". Meanwhile, the government declared a week of mourning for her death. Political figures both in the local and international arena claim that the Filipinos have just lost a mother and a guiding voice of the people.

Also, many individuals around the globe have extended sympathy and expressed their grief; we along with other people from different nations have truly admired her extraordinary courage, determination, and moral leadership, which serve as an inspiration to all and exemplify the best in the Filipino nation.

Again, we thank you. We'll let the yellow ribbon live on, generation to generation.

We pray for your soul – eternal peace and serenity with OUR Creator, Almighty Father.

With Love and Prayers, Myraine, Rainier and Eieo
