You did your best! Albay Vice Gov. Grex Lagman pays tribute to a “most decent man”
Albay Vice Gov. Grex Lagman shared his fondest memories of Malacanang as he paid tribute to the former President Benigno Aquino III on his passing.
In a Facebook post, Lagman described Aquino as “a most decent man” when he was the country’s President.
Aquino had the intelligence of his father and the dignity of his mother, and did his best by them, he said.
Lagman fondly remembers his father taking his oath in Malacanang as Deputy Budget MInister in 1987 before then President Corazon Aquino.
In 2013, it was his turn to take his oath before President Benigno Aquino III as Albay representative.
He thanked the Aquinos for these memories.
He will never forget them, for sure!
“Rest in Peace, former Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘Pnoy’ C. Aquino III.
You were a most decent man when you were our country’s President from 2010-2016. You had the intellgence of your father and the dignity of your mother. You did your best by them —- two democracy icons. And, in the process, you did your best by us.
I will always have 2 fondest memories of Malacañan: 1. When my father in 1986 took his oath before your mother as Deputy Budget Minister; 2. In 2013, when i took my oath before you as representative of the 1st District of Albay. Thank you for these memories.
May the good Lord keep you!
