Hudgens’ father, Greg Hudgens, died last Saturday, one day before Hudgens was sat to perform in Fox’s Grease: Live. Powering through the loss, the actress stole the show and earned rave reviews from fans and stars alike.

This Saturday, Hudgens shared a quote to Instagram that read, simply, “I wish heaven had visiting hours.”

Alongside the photo, the 27-year-old wrote, “If only…”


Hudgens initially revealed her father’s diagnosis last summer, telling fans at an event that he had stage 4 cancer.

The High School Musical star and her sister Stella visited a cemetery together in Burbank, California, on Tuesday.

Stella, 20, championed her older sister’s performance in Grease: Livewriting after the show, “So so proud of Vanessa. You shine so bright. I know daddy is smiling down on you.”
