Sen. Noynoy Aquino’s announcement read:
”Our mother peacefully passed away at 3:18 a.m., August 1 of cardiorespiratory arrest.

She would have wanted us to thank each and everyone of you for all your continued love and support. It was her wish for all of us to pray for one another and for our country.

Humihiling po ang aming pamilya ng kaunting panahon para makasama namin ng ilang sandali ang aming ina. Later in the day, we will be announcing details of her wake. Hinihiling namin sa lahat ng ating mamayan na magbigay ng respeto sa aming pamilya.”
