Our thoughts and prayers are with Kenya Moore, who recently lost her grandmother to Alzheimer’s.
“My grandmother, she never praised me for being attractive or beautiful,” the reality star told The Detroit Free Press in 2014. Moore, who was raised by her grandmother and aunt added, “She always praised me when I brought home all A’s. She praised me when the teachers would give me a good report. She encouraged us to value what’s between your ears.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared a poignant message on Instagram, honoring the woman who raised her, writing, “Today I lost the only woman in the world who has ever loved me unconditionally. My grandmother who raised me from three days old passed away.”
“Thank you Jehovah for sending me your Angel who taught me everything I know about love, compassion, strength, kindness, selflessness, forgiveness, family, education, brains over beauty, inner beauty, strength, respect for your elders, being true to myself….she has helped mold me into the woman I am. She truly was my best friend. She finally lost her battle with Alzheimer’s disease but her heart and spirit never failed her.”
“Thank you momma for being the best woman I have ever met in my life,” she added. “Thank you for approving of me and thank you for letting the world know how proud you are of me. I thank you for my life. I owe the world to you. I know you will never leave my side in life or after. I am eternally grateful to you. Thank you for loving me.”
On June 10 Moore married business owner, Marc Daly in a ceremony on a private resort in St. Lucia. The two had reportedly been dating for a year before tying the knot and he’s rumored to potentially make an appearance on the upcoming RHOA season.
