What's Eating Jdavies?

My President


On 5 August 2005, Raul Roco died of cardiac arrest, brought about by prostate cancer, at St Luke's Medical Center in Quezon City. His burial is scheduled in Naga City, Camarines Sur. *

My president just died today and I have my flags at half-mast. I am certain the country mourns his passing and will remember his dreams for the Philippines for many years to come.

Unlike the wikipedia article that is quick to update on his passing, His official website, raulroco.com from where I nipped his picture on the right, remains unupdated to this moment.

I started my law career with Raul Roco's firm. I have a small honoring in my blog for you to know him better. He was a great man and will be sorely missed.

Excellent tribute article Edwin. Roco certainly is one of the best presidents this country never had.
