Grace Poe on the passing of Washington Sycip

I join the nation in mourning the passing of a great man, Mr. Washington Sycip.

He was a man who radiated intelligence and inspired respect, and while he was of slight physical stature, he towered over all of his contemporaries. He was the 'Sage of our Age,' and was one of the persons I greatly admired.

We shared many advocacies such as access to quality education and alleviation of poverty. I actively sought his counsel and learned from his wisdom.

Mr. Wash, thank you for your guidance, your compassion and your contributions to the nation. We will cherish your memory and legacy.
