Honor for former President Corazon Aquino will come from the people, not from Malacañang, her daughter actress Kris Aquino said yesterday in explaining her family’s refusal to accept President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s offer to give her a state funeral.
“I am speaking on behalf of everybody, Malacañang doesn’t have to say it will give my mother (a state funeral), the honor will come from the people,” she said, in an emotional interview over ABS-CBN.
She thanked the Filipino people for their outpouring of support, saying “I feel the love. I’m so appreciative of the love. I’m so happy you treated my mom like she was your mother.”
