We, in the Lakas-CMD, are saddened to learn of the passing of our Chairman Emeritus, former President Fidel Valdez Ramos.
We all grieve because we lost a great leader and a dear friend. One who is a pillar of strength, and an inspiration to all.
President Ramos will be remembered as one of the great Filipino leaders that took good governance to heart. His experience as a military general and his innate charm set the blueprint for what Philippine leaders should be: tough when necessary, but with a caring heart for the common Filipino.
FVR is a tough act to follow. His legacy will never be forgotten.(END)
