For the last time, members of the Aquino family thanked all those who joined them in mourning the passing of the late former president Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
During the funeral mass held at the Church of Gesu in the Ateneo de Manila University, Saturday, June 26, Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, eldest sister of Noynoy, thanked the supporters of the late president for loving him.
“Nagpapasalamat kami sa mga nagmahal kay Noy kahit di nyo siya kamag-anak o kadugo (We thank everyone who loved Noy even though he was not your relative),” Ballsy said.
Kris Aquino, Noynoy’s youngest sister, also offered a heartfelt message during the public viewing of Noynoy’s remains on Friday, June 25.
“It was enough that there was a time you all had chosen him, and given him the greatest honor anybody could be given,” Kris said. – Rappler.com
