Good Bye Corazon
"Tens of thousands of mourners have gathered in the Philippines' capital Manila for the funeral of former President Corazon Aquino.
After a mass in Manila Cathedral, her body was carried through the city to be buried next to her husband, Benigno Aquino, who was assassinated in 1983.
Mrs Aquino died on Saturday of colon cancer at the age of 76.
She became president in 1986 after leading the "people power" uprising that overthrew Ferdinand Marcos." Now there was a woman that had some guts, it was sad to hear that she died on Saturday.
