President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday evening paid his final respects to Miguel Alvir Barretto, the father of celebrity sisters Gretchen, Marjorie, and Claudine.
Barretto died on Tuesday at the age of 82
In her Instagram posts Thursday, Claudine shared videos of Duterte arriving at the wake and speaking to the family.
“Thank you, Mr. President. It’s an honor to have you pay your respects to my Dad. God bless you, Mr. President, Senator Bong Go, and Atty. Panelo,” the actress wrote.
It can be recalled that Barretto was admitted to St. Luke’s Medical Center after falling ill during his birthday celebration last week.
