After a requiem mass, the House of Representatives held a necrological service for former Speaker Prospero Nograles wherein Members of the House, both former and incumbent, delivered their eulogies in honor of the life of the late Speaker. In her message, Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who was President during Speaker Nograles' speakership, remembered their friendship that lasted for more than 50 years, as well as his leadership in Congress. "I would like to thank Boy, today is, yes Boy, what a wonderful world you helped to create with your friendship, with your work and I believe that even us, your family, the House of Representatives and the Secretariat will miss you. We thank you Boy for everything you've given our country, the people you worked with, and how you made their life a wonderful life because of what you meant to them," she said. Others who spoke were former Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr., former Secretary-General Atty. Marilyn Yap, Hon. Alan Peter Cayetano, Hon. Neptali Gonzales II, former Rep. Crispin Remulla, and Rep. Ronaldo Zamora. Afterwards, Rep. Jericho Jonas Nograles, on behalf of the bereaved family, conveyed his response to the attendees of the necrological service. | Molie Gonzales / Gilbert Engay, PPAB-IPAD
