Grace Barred At Iggy's Wake

The widow of Negros Occidental Rep. Ignacio “Iggy” T. Arroyo announced Thursday the funeral arrangements for her husband, but made it clear that his common-law wife, Grace Ibuna, will not be welcome at the wake and burial.
Alicia Rita “Aleli” Morales-Arroyo, who arrived in London Thursday, said the remains of the opposition lawmaker will arrive late afternoon Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1.

The wake will be at the “conjugal home” at 17 Badjao street, La Vista, Quezon City until Tuesday, Mrs. Arroyo said.
Necrological services and Mass will be held on the same day at the House of Representatives session hall at the Batsang Pambansa cimplex in Quezon City. The body will then be flown to Bacolod City where it will lie until Thursday afternoon.
In a text message, Mrs. Arroyo said the remains will be brought back to their residence on Friday. Burial will take place the following day at the North Cemetery in Manila.
“Representative Arroyo will be laid to rest beside his mother,” she said.
Lawyers for the widow said Mrs. Arroyo gave specific instructions to bar Ibuna from attending any of the memorial services planned for the congressman who died last Thursday from complications triggered by cirrhosis of the liver.
With her lawyer Lorna Kapunan, Mrs. Arroyo flew to the United Kingdom late afternoon Tuesday to make arrangements for bringing home her husband’s remains .
While in London, the two will will play sleuth in London in a bid to build up a criminal case against the person allegedly responsible for the unauthorized decision to pull the plug from the life support system that led to the death of the Negros Occidental lawmaker.
Kapunan and Aleli said they will confer with hospital authorities at the London Clinic where Arroyo died to inquire into the real circumstances surrounding his death.

Grace Ibuna has the right to see Iggy on his burial. She is the one who care him when he was in a critical condition.
