Though I’m not a “Corista,” it’s still sad to hear of her passing.

According to sources, the family made an occular visit of Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig the other day for Cory’s funeral arrangement.  A presscon will be held today at 11 a.m. Manila time regarding Cory’s passing and funeral.

UPDATE: President Cory Aquino’s wake will be at the La Salle Greenhills and will be buried at the Manila Memorial Park, says spokesperson Deedee Siytangco.

UPDATE 2: Cory will be buried beside husband Ninoy Aquino at the Manila Memorial Park on Wednesday.  Public viewing of her remains will be at the La Salle Greenhills starting 5 p.m. today until Monday.  A mass will be officiated at 8 p.m. tonight.  There will be a gap in public viewing from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m.

On Monday, Cory’s remains will be transferred to the Manila Cathedral Church in Intramuros for necrological service.

    Yeah! Such a loss to a country missing the real essence of democracy that she and her husband fought for years!
