MANILA, Philippines - Atty. Leni Robredo on Tuesday paid tribute to her husband, the late Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo, at his state funeral in Naga City.
In her eulogy, Mrs. Robredo thanked her husband for leaving behind a good name to their 3 children, Aika, Patricia and Jillian.
"In death, he gave my children that gift, a good name. The best way to honor him is to guard that name and make him proud," she said.
She described her husband as a good family man who worked hard but always rushed home to be with his family.
She said that before his death, her husband once told her that he had already achieved more than he ever dreamed of.
"His cup was indeed overflowing. His dreams for himself were simple and God gave him more than he asked for."
"I will make sure that your dreams for our children will be fulfilled....You are home now,. You are back where you truly belong. Rest well. We will love you forever."
