President Corazon Aquino dies at 76

Today at 3:18am the former Philippine President Corazon Aquino dies secondary to cardiopulmonary arrest. She was an icon for democracy for the Philippines. She lost the battle against colon cancer.

The government announced a 10 day mourning period, although the family opted for a private funeral rather than a state one.

She will stay at La Salle Greenhills gym till Monday where she will be taken to Manila Cathedral until her interment at Manila Memorial on Wednesday.

My condolences to the family.

we all know that the Aquino's are public figures. But as respect to the family, I do agree with them for having a private funeral instead.
