Farewell Cory Aquino

Among my favorite presidents is Corazon Cojuangco Aquino. Popularly called Cory, she was a symbol of democracy here in the Philippines. Her bout with colon cancer eventually led to her demise today, August 1, 2009. She is one person that the world will surely miss..

I will never forget the day I approached her in one of her campaign visits here in Cebu sometime in April 1998 while she was campaigning for Alfredo Lim who was running for President. I was very privileged to have her sign a Cebu Stamp Club cover which bears her different stamps. I will always treasure that uncancelled cover with her signature.

Farewell Madame President! Our prayers will always be with you...
