Dr. Placido “Cidito” Ledesma Mapa, Jr., 86, passed away on May 5, 2019. He was the founding chairman of the Board of Trustees of UA&P Foundation, Inc. He first met Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao in Cambridge. The latter became the co-founder of CRC and the first president of UA&P.

“I received the news of Cidito´s passing into the next world with mixed emotions: sadness for our loss, thankfulness for all the good he did in life; and reflection on the lessons we can all learn from his exemplary life.

“This being May, and the place where I am (Barcelona) being dotted with many churches, I opted to go on a special pilgrimage to an image of our Lady at the Monestir de Pedralbes. I offered special prayers for Cidito there.

“While at prayer before the image of Our Lady, I reflected on a few of the key lessons I have been privileged to learn from the exemplary life Cidito lived.”
