PNoy passed away on Thursday due to renal disease secondary to diabetes at the age of 61.

He was laid to rest at the Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque City on Saturday, beside his parents; Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. and Corazon Aquino.

Among those who paid a tribute to the former president is no other than his 2016 running mate and ex-interior secretary Mar Roxas.

He said: “Ginampanan niya ng tama, tuwid, tapat ang kanyang tungkulin at obligasyon.”

He added: “I just believe in PNoy’s case, history will treat him favorably.”

Mar Roxas stressed that PNoy was never bitter and “always hopeful” for the country.

“I believe PNoy sincerely wants, continues to want Duterte to succeed. No matter what, he’s the president and his success means success ng Pilipinas,” he said.

According to Mar Roxas, it was in the third quarter of 2019 when PNoy told him about his health.

“Sabi ko sa kanya, ninong (sa kasal), you have to meet the fruit of your pagka ninong, our children. Dun siya nagtapat sa’kin, (about) his health… I’m not in good health, baka better you don’t bring your kids muna (just yet),” Roxas said.

“If there’s any regret…I’m sad he’s gone, I’m sad he’s passed. I’m really sad na (that) he died alone. That he didn’t experience the joys of having a wife and kids…malungkot lang ako na na-miss niya yun,” he added.
