Dennis Padilla's brother, comedian Gene Padilla lost his 6-year-old daughter Gene Justine to a bout of dengue yesterday, June 29.
In a recent interview with PEP, Dennis said that the family is devastated by the loss as the child suffered for seven days before she succumbed to the disease. Gene Justine was infected by a "deadly" strain of the virus, which also affected her younger, 2-year-old sibling.
Gene Justine's wake is held at the Funeraria Paz in Quezon City. She will be cremated this July 4.
