Before his death, former Senate President Aquilino "Nene" Pimentel was hard at work on a book on the impeachment trial of the late Chief Justice Renato Corona. 

Lourdes "Bing" Pimentel, the late senator's wife, said her husband was writing several books including one on the Corona trial. 

"Malapit nang matapos," she told radio DZMM, adding that she promised her husband that the book would be finished with the help of their son-in-law and nephew. 

"I just whispered to him in the end not to worry, ipagpapatuloy lahat ng ginagawa mo."

The former Senate President, 85, succumbed to lymphoma on Sunday morning, days after he was admitted to the intensive care unit of a hospital. 

"Whatever remaining time he had, he gave it to the fullest to whatever came his way," Lourdes said.

"So if you'd ask me if I feel he lived his life to the fullest? My answer is yes," she added.
