“We mourn the passing of former Speaker Prospero ‘Boy’ Nograles and offer our deepest condolences to his loved ones and constituents. A bar topnotcher, he served for a long time in Congress. He was a very helpful to me when it was my task as Undersecretary of Trade and Industry to navigate our department’s relations with Congress. It was my honor that he was Speaker of the House of Representatives from 2008 to 2010 during my Presidency. I recall how much he was loved, not only by his fellow Congressmen but, just as important, by the staff of the House whose welfare he cared so much about. We will miss him.”
Arroyo, in a modern barong and black pants, visited Nograles’ wake and was photographed deep in prayer.
Deepest condolences to the family of Nograles.
