RIP Madam Senator. Thank you for your service to our country
She should have been president in 1992 pa, nagbrownout nga lang at ng magkailaw nasa 2nd position na sya sa bilangan!
I still can't believe that Ramos won over her. Fidel Ramos was hardly popular!
correct! and guess who kung sino ang nag endorso ke Ramos. haisstt....napakalaking kawalan ni madam sa ating bayan.
Anon 11:44, what do you mean hardly popular? He was one of the EDSA Heroes. Malamang hindi ka pa pinapanganak nung time na yun, ineng.
RIP Sen. Miriam. Thank you for your service to our country!
Pag masamang tinapay talaga noh ang tagal pag yung ibang politiko.. Anyway, RIP Sen Miriam! Salamat!
May she rest in peace.
In a way, I'm glad she died in her sleep. A peaceful way of leaving. RIP, Madame. This is heartbreaking.
I feel so sad!!! RIP Madam Senator!!!You will be extremely missed!!!
The best president we never have. RIP Madam
She should have been president in 1992 but....
"we never had" teh. Anyway, true. Siguro kaya din di sya nanalo kasi di natin sya makakasama ng matagal if ever. Hayy! I voted for her. RIP Sen. :(
RIP Senator Miriam. Nowadays, it's a luxury to die in your sleep.
rest in Peace Sen. Miriam
She served her country with wisdom, honor, conviction and dignity, even when she took the unpopular opinion. With the kind of leaders our country has recently elected into office, from the top to the bottom positions, it will be a long time before we see another intelligent, funny, and honorable person like her in government. She is truly inimitable and will be sorely missed. Rest in peace now, Madam.
Sad. Times like this make you think how badly we need someone like Senator Miriam in the senate. You will be missed.
Our senate is hopeless, so with our country. Few are those who are willing to serve our country, they are overpowered by those with the machinery and money, willing to make them work for their own personal motives.
My exact sentiment... Nakakalungkot na ang inabutan nating senators Ay puro grandstanding at payabangan. Nasaan na yung mga katulad ni MDS, Salonga, Joker , Roco ..
this is really sad :(
Oh my very sad RIP Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago.
Naiiyak ako, siya talaga ang senator na minahal ng bayan. Kahit seryoso siya sa trabaho niya may mga witty jokes siya. The Senate is so different without you. May you Rest In Peace.
Believe me, It would have doNE her more harm to be in the Senate with those monkeys in there right now. Kay Pacquiao palang baka high blood pa ikinamatay nya. Knowing the way Miriam was. Haha
11:48 tama ka! Si lito lapid nga hindi nagsasalita pero hina high blood ako makita ko lang mukha! Isama mo pa si bong revilla at jinggoy ngayon pacquioa pa! Suskolord, mayayamot ka talaga!
Quite shocked. RIP and sincere condolences to the loved ones of Madam Miriam.
She was not the perfect politician but I have always admired her willingness to serve the country. Her public service record is undeniable. One of the greatest senators we ever had and she would have been a great president too had cancer not taken over her body. May you rest in peace, Sen. Miriam.
Trying to hold back tears but I just cannot :(
Ang aking paboritong kandidato mula noon hanggang ngayon. Rip madam.
Binantayan ko pa un bilangan sa election nun una nyang pagkandidato bilang presidente. Tumitigil ako sa paglalaro kapag may updates na tungkol sa bilangan. Tapos nun sinabi ng matatanda na "matatalo na yan, nagbrown out na". Di ko pa nun maintindihan bat nila nasabi un. After ng brown out dun ako unang namulat ukol sa corruption.
Rest in peace Sen. Miriam :(
May she rest in peace. 🙏
rest in peace my president :(
Ang sakit nmn sa puso... RIP Sen.
I have both editions of Stupid is Forever. I'm so sad that she's gone. You will be forever missed and remembered.
i'm crying right now . :-(
Can't help but think about our country and her future, too, huh?
RIP Sen. Miriam Santiago..
RIP Sen. Meriam Santiago
SAAAAAAD :( CANCER SUCKS!!!!
our condolences,deepest sympathy&prayers to the bereaved family of Sen.Miriam..rest in peace Madam in the arms of our Lord..we lost a very good senator in you.
Her memory is a huge reminder why our country is the way it is now. Filipinos fail the Philippines over and over and over. We deserve what we now have, sadly, the future generation will have to pay for it.
The Queen has died. A very sad day indeed 😭
Rest in Peace, Madame Miriam Santiago :'(
RIP Sen. Miriam, you will be greatly missed.
Senate wont be the same without you.. Rest in peace our witty senator
Rest in peace Madame Miriam.
You were my president. Madam paalam na po. I remember my mom use to tell me stories about your life in Ilo-Ilo. How you've manage to start your life from scratches. I hope Philippines become better even without you.
So sad rip sen. Meriam.
Malaking kawalan si Senator Miriam sa buong bansang Pilipinas. Taos pusong pakikiramay sa kanyang mga mahal sa buhay. With the grace and mercy of our loving God, Sen. Miriam will be happy in Heaven.
Madam namimiss na nga kita sa senado. sana mas makulay at makabuluhan ang mga debate sa senado kung andun ka. RIP Madam!
Rip po mam
R.I.P, my lola!
So ibig sabihin ba nito na wala ng matino ngayon sa gobyerno? RIP po.
RIP Madam Miriam!nakakalungkot at iniwan mo na kami..kayo ni Raul Roco ang the best President we never had...hayyyy
Rest in peace, MDS. :( You will surely be missed. The best President we never had.
You mattered, you really do. Rest well Madam Senator. *tries to hold back tears over a person I haven't met.
The best president we never had. RIP Sen. Miriam. You shall be missed.
Thank you for the service, for the gems of wisdom, and humor. Thank you for the always giving the best graduation addresses. And lastly, for the two last books you left us to help us laugh during trying situations. RIP Madam. May the Almighty bless and give Philippines another Miriam.
Im really saddened by her passing. She was the best president our country could have had. I never regret that i gave my vote to her. Sen. Miriam, you made your legacy. We will always remember you. kt
The good ones always go first.

RIP Sen. Meriam Santiago. A great loss to the Philippines
Rest in peace to the best President we never had.
I voted for you MDS even though I know you're having a hard time already. You could have been the best president, but destiny has other plans, you will be at a happier and more peaceful place.
With all the events that are happening in the Philippines since Duterte took office, I was wondering why we never heard from you, yon pala you are fighting your own personal battle. Rest in peace now Senator Miriam. I truly admire and love you.
1992 pa lang MDS na dapat ang presidente natin and now she succumbed to cancer. RIP sa pinaka tumatak na senator sa akin. Thank you and rest in peace
Rest in Peace Madam Senator Miriam. I voted for you and never regretted it. You have lived your life admirably.
One of the Greatest Senators of the Republic of the Philippines. Rest in Peace Senator Miriam.
i never regretted that i voted for her. such a great loss to the Philippine government and especially to the Filipino people.
Agree baks we belong to the 3% who trust her. Sayang, rest now Senator magkikita na kayo ng anak mo in heaven
Im so sad. Rest in peace Ma'am.
Everytime she speaks waaaa goosebumps! Sharp and witty lady, what a great loss! The BEST president we never had, bar none. Rest in eternal peace, madame!
Her achievements are indeed an inspiration to the youth! May you rest in eternal peace. Great sadness engulfs me now.
Your legacy as public servant will forever be etched in our hearts and minds. Maraming, maraming salamat po. Kayo po ang PINAKAMAAYOS NA PRESIDENTE n di mpalad n magkaroon ang Pilipinas.
inexplicable sadness,we lost a great lady today,full of integrity,intelligence and honesty, May you rest in paradise with Jesus, Madame Senator!
No other senator one can ever replace her bravery, courage, determination, credibility and intelligence. Now that she's gone, we don't have anyone challenging the likes of Pacquiao or any other "novice" and "inexeperienced" senator for that matter. May you rest in peace "Madam President" #Salute #MyPresident
Totoong matapang. Hindi nagpapaawa kahit may sakit na.
what a sad day for our country! Rest in peace, Madame Senator. Please watch over our country, we will miss you.
Nakakalungkot maraming makakamiss ky sen miriam santiago rest in peace po
RIP MDS. :(
A WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE...MDS
sad day for the countrysad day for Iloilosad day for the senatesad day for those who loved and admired her
Rest in peace, Sen. Miriam.
RIP Sen. Miriam, hays nakakalungkot. :(
the ONLY senator i admire. The One and Only! rest in peace, madam. keep watching us from above.
Ala na circus na tlga ang senado. RIP Sen. Miriam
A VERY BRILLIANT SENATOR. THE GREATEST AMONG THEM ALL.YOU WILL SURELY BE MISSED!
She put her country a priority even in her last days. God bless.
Never have I cried over the death of a politician. But she's a hero to me, from childhood and until now. Am sure am not the only one who feels this way. She was indeed dazzling in her brilliance, watching her demonstrate how her brain works is captivating to say the least. She was THE MDS even before the public was exposed to her acerbic humor. I will miss her expertise in politics and the law, I will miss her mastery of argument, I will miss her mightily striving to always excel. Never have we seen so much passion traverse across the 3 branches of the PH government, and tbh, I don't think such can happen again in the next few lifetimes. She is one of a kind, beautiful heart of service, and a truly truly, beautiful mind.
Thank you for writing this. I want to cry.
thanks u sen miriam. rip po. sana naman maimplement na smoking ban sa bansa. i know di cause ng pnonigarilyo ang sakit ni sen mirriam. pero juscolored dami naninigarilyo sa pinas. kaya sana tigil nyo pagyosi hithitin nyo na lang tambucho ng mga jeep before its too late
