Gretchen has been estranged from her family for quite a while now and its’s the first occassion that she’s making this gesture of reuniting with them.
The Barretto patriarch was rushed to St. Luke’s Medical Center on the day of his 82nd birthday, September 29. And one of his children, Claudine Barretto, was the first to announce to the public the sad news of his passing.
Last night, October 16, Claudine shared via Instagram a snippet of her sister Gretchen arriving at their father’s wake at the Heritage Memorial Park, Taguig City.
In the video, Gretchen can be seen making her way to her father’s casket, but was met midway by country’s President Duterte, who was also paying his respect and who reportedly arrived minutes prior to Gretchen’s arrival. The president reportedly came with Senator Bong Go and Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo.
Claudine’s video was captioned: “And then,We are Complete @gretchenbarretto im so Proud of u.I admire & luv u more today #doubleinfinity #thatsmyAte WELCOME HOME ❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
Indeed, no matter how sad the occassion, the estranged daughter was home.
