Yesterday she and other family members and close friends were spotted at the wake. She looked an emotional wreck, but tries to put up a brave face.

Brathwaite, affectionately called Gran Gran by Rihanna, died on July 1st in a New York hospital after a long battle with cancer.

“My heart smiled and cried all at once #grangranDolly,” Rihanna tweeted this week.

Our deepest condolence goes out to home girl Rihanna and her family in this time of bereavement.
