Yesterday, Miley Cyrus paid her tribute to her beloved grandmother on Instagram and penned an emotional letter after her sad death. She wrote:
“Even though you are gone… NOTHING has or ever will change. You will FOREVER be my inspiration and fashion icon. Even more than that, the ultimate model of being a true LIGHT in a dark world. You are sunshine.
Everyday I wake and see that fiery ball in the sky, I will see your face. Then say a prayer thanking heaven above for giving me the best grandmother a girl could ever be gifted. I will miss you for the rest of my life.
I will keep your spirit here by continuing to do good for others and treating them the way we all desire to be treated. With an infinite amount of the same gentle kindness, you displayed daily. We will ache everyday you are not with us…”
