DAVAO CITY - Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and her family visited her grandparents' grave at the Roman Catholic Cemetery here ahead of the observance of All Souls' Day.

The local government released photos of Duterte visiting the grave of her paternal grandparents, President Rodrigo Duterte's mother Soledad Roa Duterte and father former Davao governor Vicente Duterte, on Oct. 15.

Carpio was with her husband Manases Carpio, their children, and her mother Elizabeth Zimmerman during the visit.

Duterte also visited San Pedro Memorial Park, where her maternal grandparents are buried.

In a statement, Duterte urged the public to visit their departed loved ones early to avoid huge crowds expected to flock to the cemeteries on Nov. 1.
