An emotional Kandi Burruss remembers her late brother who would have celebrated his 50th birthday Thursday. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star penned a sweet note to Patrick Burruss who died at the age of 22.
Ace and Riley’s uncle passed away in 1991 after getting into a tragic car accident in Mexico.
Kandi posted a series of pictures where she can be seen opening Christmas presents with her big brother when they were children.
Todd Tucker’s wife said she wondered what Patrick would have done with his life.
The diva wrote: “Happy Birthday to my brother Patrick! He was the best big brother in the whole world. Sometimes I wonder what would he be doing if he was still here. I still miss him. ❤️❤️❤️#PatrickRiley.”
Fans of the Xscape singer are shocked by fact that Ace is his late uncle’s twin.
One person stated: “Lord. Ace looks just like him. Happy birthday he would have been so proud of his little boss lady sister also love you Kandi. I feel like it’s obvious she’s posting s tribute to her brother, and it’s clear he has sadly passed. DAMN ignorance and stupidity. Don’t let these people judge you. You made a simple mistake. Most of the people commenting don’t read either. They look at pictures and like. They read the comments so they can attack a person. Love you @kandi blessings to you. I’m sure he’s smiling at the person you are.”
Another commenter told the mother of two: “So very sweet. God bless his memory. I’m sure he’s extremely proud of his little sis. I know u miss your brother and if anyone that knows you know you lost your brother I don’t understand Kandi have a great day. I thought Ace looked like Todd more, but DAMN he looks like you so much in this picture! Also, I know your big brother is watching over you smiling at all your success.”
This supporter shared: “Your son looks just like the little you ❤️ that’s the worst part about losing someone you love…wonder what life would be like if they were still here what would “my” life be like. 🙏🏿 R.I.P.”
Kandi recently opened up about Patrick on Xscape Still Kickin’ It series and said if he was alive, herself, Tiny Harris, and the Scott sisters would have stayed together as a group.
She stated: “He got along with everybody, and even when there was drama, he was able to get us all on the same page. If my brother had not passed away, we probably would have lasted longer as a group than we did.”
Kandi is hoping to grow her family in the near future.
