Julia Barretto says her 'last goodbye' to her grandpa Miguel Barretto

The Barretto patriarch, Miguel Barretto, was laid to rest yesterday, October 19, through cremation. 

One of his granddaughters, Julia Barretto, took to Instagram to say her last farewell to her grandpa whom they fondly referred to as "Pikey."

"Today, we said our last goodbye to our dearest Pikey. We finally put him to rest," she began.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Today we said our last goodbye to our dearest Pikey. We finally put him to rest. Pikey, I’m sorry for how a solemn occasion and celebration of your life turned into a circus. That instead of your legacy being remembered and given of attention, it created noise and more damage. This is not how it was supposed to be. I’m sorry that you watched all of this happen. My dearest 9/29, the past months have been difficult, but seeing you suffer and then watching you leave us was the toughest part. On top of that, on top of my pain and broken heart I am being attacked. Pikey, despite all these false accusations targetted at me, despite all the lies being spread about my family and me, I will remain still and keep my peace. I will exclude myself from a battle that is not mine, but I will still stand by my mom and will be there for her no matter what happens. I will focus on sharing your legacy and the beautiful stories about how great of a person you were. Since your passing, I’ve been busy with work and I will focus on that because I know that that was your doing together with the Lord God. The rest of my family and I will be continued to be attacked and painted as bad people, but you and God know we were there during the good and most difficult times leading up to your passing. Your legacy will live on. I will keep my peace, focus on you, my faith, and the work that I have been receiving. Please 9/29, please Rest In Peace. And to everyone, I humbly ask that you please stop attacking me and my family at this most difficult time. We are all in pain and we are all still grieving our loss. Love and light to all. 9/29... signing off.

Julia then promised her grandpa that she will "remain still and keep her peace" amidst life’s challenges. She vowed to focus on sharing the wonderful legacy that her grandpa left. 

"I will focus on sharing your legacy and the beautiful stories about how great of a person you were. Since your passing, I’ve been busy with work and I will focus on that because I know that that was your doing together with the Lord God," she wrote. 

"Your legacy will live on. I will keep my peace, focus on you, my faith, and the work that I have been receiving."

"Please 9/29, please Rest In Peace."

The actress then ended her post by asking everyone to give her family some privacy during their time of grieving, "We are all in pain and we are all still grieving our loss. Love and light to all."

May your soul rest in peace, Mr. Barretto.
