Beverly Vergel, a former actress, attended the wake of Mike Barretto, who died last week at the age of 82.
KAMI learned that Beverly shared on social media her touching conversation with Mommy Inday Barretto, Mike’s widow.
According to Beverly, Inday told her that Mike’s death affected his grandchildren the most.
The former actress’ observations at the wake confirmed Inday’s comments, as she saw the grandkids constantly crying and checking Mike in the coffin.
“Last night at the wake of Tito Mike, the BARRETTO patriarch
“Behind closed doors. After the guests have left. Generations of Barretto’s sat inside the chapel. The grandchildren kept going to ‘Pikey’ as they fondly call Tito Mike.
“They kept touching the cover, wiping, opening, adjusting and closing it, fixing the satin cloth around the coffin’s rim.
“I was seated beside Tita Inday Barretto who said... ‘it’s harder on the grandchildren’, as she looked at them fuzzing over with fondness at their Pikey.
“I saw how the grandchildren wanted him to wake-up. I saw the two video presentations. One made by Dani and another by Leon. Both full of love and both showed what Pikey meant to them and in their lives. The grandchildren were in tears.
“For the grandchildren, ‘PIKEY’ is the greatest loss they’ve experienced in their young lives. Let’s pray for God’s love and comfort to be showered upon them and the Barretto clan. Peace,” Beverly wrote on Facebook.
KAMI reported earlier that Lolit Solis discussed her thoughts about Mommy Inday.
Inday Barretto is the mother of celebrity siblings Gretchen, Marjorie, and Claudine Barretto. Many of her grandchildren are also celebrities, including Dani, Claudia, and Julia Barretto.
