Sadly, the star of Riverdale is going through a painful time as she is mourning the passing of her beloved grandmother. Lili Reinhart took to social media today to announce the news and also pay tribute to the woman who played a huge role in her life growing up.
The actress, who plays Betty Cooper on the fan favorite CW series Riverdale, posted a beautiful black and white photo of the woman and wrote a touching message in the caption.
‘My Nana went to heaven this morning. I am heartbroken. Speechless. All that I can say right now is how loved she was by her entire family. We will miss her more than words can say.’
In addition, the 21 year old star’s mother, Amy Reinhart, also took to Instagram to acknowledge the loss of the family by sharing a poem titled Embracing Hope.
The final part of the touching piece of poetry reads: ‘I struggle some, but I will cope; For I will be embracing hope; That brings me peace and lets me see; You are not gone, you live in me.’
It must be hard but it sounds like the two women, and probably the rest of the family members are trying to be strong and honor the memory of the late woman in the most gracious way.
We can only hope Lili’s Riverdale fellow cast members and friends are also by her side, helping her cope with the loss.
Our thoughts and prayers go to Lili and all of her loved ones. May her Nana rest in peace!
