CORRECTS LAST NAME OF MOTHER TO LAUDE - In this Friday, Oct. 17, 2014 photo, Julita Laude, mother of Filipino transgender Jennifer Laude, grieves beside the casket of her daughter at a funeral parlor in Olongapo, Zambales province, northern Philippines. Laude's distraught mother Julita said she lost a child, who had given her money regularly for medicine for her ailments, including diabetes and hypertension.
