It is a sad day for Bicolanos like myself and to the Filipino people as we lost another good servant in the person of Jesse Robredo, Sec. DILG. I do not know him personally but I am so grateful for all the things he has done for my city. He was the mayor of Naga for six terms, and even though i have not been to Naga in years, back in 2009 when I last visited, I was so delighted with the city’s progress, thanks to his dedication, service and good governance. I want to honor Sec Jesse today and thank him for all his time, talent and service to the people. I am deeply saddened by this loss, but at the same time consoled that we now have a prayer partner in heaven who will intercede for us. He will now be in the company of angels unceasingly praising and honoring our heavenly Father and praying for us as well. May i ask, my LOJ family to please say a prayer for the eternal repose of our dear Jesse Robredo.
Thank you and may God bless us all.
