The Philippines’ King of Comedy Dolphy was finally laid to rest on Sunday afternoon in a solemn funeral attended by hundreds of the popular actor's relatives and friends, as well as members of the entertainment industry and politicians.
Dolphy's family, led by long-time partner Zsa Zsa Padilla, brought him to his final resting place at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig.
Many in the star-studded crowd openly wept as the casket shimmered in the afternoon sun while pall bearers carried it a short distance from inside a chapel to the grounds of a heavily-secured exclusive cemetery.
The final prayer for Dolphy was led by Father Larry Faraon, who reminded the crowd that the late comedian wanted everyone to smile in his funeral. He led the crowd in giving cheers to Dolphy.
