President Benigno S. Aquino III visited the graves of his parents, Senator Ninoy Aquino Jr. and President Corazon Aquino, at the Manila Memorial Park two days before the customary All Saints’ Day observance. He was with his sisters Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, Pinky Aquino-Abellada, Viel Aquino-Dee and Kris Aquino who arrived with her two sons, Joshua and James Jr.
A short eucharistic mass, officiated by the PSG Chaplain Major Daniel Tancip, was heard at the family mausoleum where their parents are entombed. It was con-celebrated by Fr. Larry Tolentino of the Diocese of Parramatta in Sydney, Australia.
The Aquino siblings also visited the tombs of their grandparents Jose and Demetria Cojuangco.
