 Independent senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan and his wife Sharon Cuneta, together with their children KC, Frankie and Miel share their heartfelt sympathies to the family of the late former president Corazon Aquino.

“She will forever be remembered as the Philippine President who inspired our people to rise up against tyranny and usher in the renewal of democracy in the country. We are grateful for that legacy. It was through her that we found our voices and gained the courage to express ourselves freely and without fear.”

“She was able to unite a country that was bound and gagged for so long, and lead them towards freedom and democracy. She displayed self-sacrifice by stepping down when she knew her work was done; a rarity in Philippine politics.”

“We are saddened by her passing, yet we will forever be grateful for her legacy.”
