Filipino netizens on Sunday paid tribute to the late Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago as she was laid at her final resting place.

The hashtag #MiriamShallReturn is currently the top trending topic on Twitter, in reference to a line in Santiago’s book “Stupid is Forever,” where she wrote: “When I die I don’t want ‘RIP’ initials on my tombstone. Ang gusto ko ‘ISR’ ‘I Shall Return.'”


Santiago’s remains were brought to the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina from the Cubao Cathedral for the burial rites.

The senator passed away on Thursday after battling lung cancer. She was 71. YG/JE/rga
