Tomorrow, when the nation buries another former president, Fidel V. Ramos, we'll see the same funeral honors and services given to former president Noynoy Aquino in June last year.

But there'll be some adjustments to suit the family's requests or because of the nearness of FVR's wake to where he will be buried.
