Rihanna Honors Late Grandmother With Sweet Photo, Inspiring Message

by at . Comments

Rihanna is paying tribute yet again to her late grandmother Clara "Dolly" Braithwaite, posing a touching photo and note on the anniversary of her death.

The singer writes on her Instagram, along with the following picture:

Rihanna, Grandma

"Today marks one year since you crossed the bridge! Still you never left... I can still remember your laugh, and I miss it, I miss the sound of your voice."

"I miss the way you danced and got so happy when you heard music, I miss doing your makeup and taking your pictures, I miss the way you looked right at me."

"I miss looking back at you, that proud look on your face!"

"Never did I think it could be this soon, but I'm happy you're in Heaven, laughing and dancing with the Angels! Dolly you are my precious Angel!"

"I love you beyond what words can describe!"

"I just miss you Gran Gran! #Dolly #FirstAnniversary"

Is there a dry eye among celebrity gossip readers right now?

Rihanna also paid tribute to Dolly in December by donating $1.75 million to the radiotherapy department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados.

The facility has now officially been renamed in Gran Gran Dolly's honor as the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine.

Way to go, Rih. And RIP, Gran Gran!
