9-1-1 star Jennifer Love Hewitt has been experiencing heartbreak for the past decade, and she’s taking the time to talk about it.
In a recent Instagram post, the I Know What You Did Last Summer actress revealed that it’s been 10 years since her mother Patricia died from complications of cancer. Sharing a photo of herself sitting side-by-side with her mother, Jennifer confessed that this anniversary has her feeling “raw,” and she still carries the heartache with her today.
“Today is 10 years since losing my best friend,” she captioned the picture. “Someone told me after losing my mom that the first year would feel impossible, the years after would build strength in me and then the 10 year mark would be an open wound all over again. Because it would feel insane to have been without her that long. They were right. Today feels very raw. I will never forget not making it to say goodbye. “
In the caption, Jennifer also detailed some of the harder moments she’s faced since losing her mother, which included accidentally calling her during tougher days and hoping to see her face when walking into Patricia’s former home. While she acknowledges how difficult the journey has been, the Ghost Whisperer actress touched on the impact Patricia had on her family’s lives.
“Today I will celebrate her because I know she helped me build my family. My incredible children and a wonderful man who helps me everyday create our little unit,” Jennifer continued. “She knew it’s all I ever wanted. And I know she is with us everyday. I will eat and drink her favorite things today. The kids and I will look at pics of Mimi and all her adventures and I will feel so grateful that she was mine if only for awhile. I love you mama. Always and forever. “
In response, fans not only commended her bravery, but rushed to support her through this difficult time. “Sending you a big hug, ❤️” actress Lindsay Price wrote in the comments section of the Instagram post. “What a beautiful way to celebrate your mama 🤍 sending love,” a fan replied. Another fan found a way to pen all of our thoughts into one perfect response: “Beautiful words ❤️ I’m sure she is incredibly proud of the woman you are, the joy you bring to people who don’t know you, and the amazing Mama you are taking inspiration from her. “
Our thoughts are with you, Jennifer.
