Preparations are being laid out for the final welcome for the late Negros Oriental Gov. Agustin Perdices on Friday afternoon.

Gov. Roel Degamo held an emergency meeting of all department heads of the Province Thursday to discuss plans for the vigil.

After Perdices’ remains arrive on board the Philippine Airlines flight at 3 p.m., his body will be brought to the Capitol, where it will lie in state for two days. All the provincial offices will sponsor snacks and vigil services.

On Sunday, there will be a necrological mass at the Provincial Capitol at 10 a.m. officiated by Msgr. Gamaliel Tulabing, the judicial vicar for the Diocese of Dumaguete.

After the Mass, Perdices’ body will be brought to the City Hall, where he served for a record 19 years. The body will remain at City Hall until Tuesday, January 11, where it will be brought to the Dumaguete Cathedral Church at 9 a.m. for the final necrological mass.

The late Governor’s body will be brought to the Dumaguete Memorial Park at 11 a.m. in time for the 12 noon burial. Perdices will be buried beside the remains of his late wife Ma. Eugenia Araneta-Perdices.

Perdices succumbed to stomach cancer at the St. Luke’s Global City Medical Center in Pasig City shortly past 5 p.m. Wednesday. He was 76.
