Kalayaan Grounds, Malacañang
26 August 2012
After lying in State for two days, President Benigno S. Aquino III and his Cabinet secretaries sent-off the remains of Secretary Jesse Robredo from Malacañang in a departure honors ceremony rendered by the members of the Presidential Security Group.
Last night, a Eucharistic mass and memorial services were offered by the Liberal Party and the Aquino Cabinet to commemorate the life experiences with Secretary Robredo. While the eulogy continued, the public viewing which was supposed to be ended at 5:00 p.m. kept on going to accommodate ordinary citizens who queued outside Malacañang to pay tribute to the late Secretary.
The remains of Secretary Robredo will be transported to Villamor Air Base before departing for the Secretary’s home town in Naga City.
