MANILA - The Senate will give honors to the late Sen. Tessie Aquino-Oreta through a resolution on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri said.

Given continuing measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease, the Senate will hold virtual necrological services for Aquino-Oreta in lieu of traditional rites for late lawmakers at the Senate session hall in Pasay City.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III, who had worked alongside Aquino-Oreta at the Senate, expressed sadness for a friend's passing. "She was very close to me and Sec. Greg," he said, referring to Department of Information and Communications Technology Secretary Gringo Honasan, who was a former senator."Helen, being a relative of theirs, is devastated by her passing. She has not stopped crying since we were told the news last night," he said.

Aquino-Oreta, an aunt of former president Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III and sister of slain martial law opposition figure senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., passed away Thursday night for a still undisclosed cause. She was 75. Some of her bills that were signed into law include the Early Childhood Care and Development Act, the Solo Parent Act, the Solid Waste Management Act, the Philippine High School System Act, and the Clean Air Act, among others.
