Remains of Iggy Arroyo arrive from London

February 29, 2012 11:55pm
The remains of the late Negros Occidental Rep. Ignacio "Iggy" Arroyo Jr. arrived home Wednesday night, more than a month after he died in London.
 
Arroyo's remains arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), accompanied by his partner Grace Ibuna, according to a report on GMA News’ "Saksi."
 
"He was the kindest man... Napakabait niyang tao," Ibuna said as she thanked those who supported her and her family.
 
She declined to talk about other matters, saying she would "just want him to have a dignified burial."
 
Rep. Arroyo died in London after a long battle with cirrhosis of the liver.


 
From NAIA, the remains of the late congressman were to be brought to the Arlington Funeral Homes.
 
The remains of the late Negros Occidental representative would then be brought to the Arroyos' ancestral home in La Vista, Quezon City, on March 1, 2, and 8.
 
On March 3 and 4, his remains would be brought to the house of his wife Aleli, also in La Vista.
 
On March 5, Arroyo would be brought to the House of Representatives at the Batasan Complex, after which he would be flown to Bacolod City before being returned to Manila on March 8.
 
The late lawmaker will be buried March 9 at the Manila North Cemetery, the report said. — VS, GMA News
