"So thankful to spend some quality time with all our loved ones on Thanksgiving," the Backstreet Boys artist wrote on Saturday, November 26, next to a carousel of photos. "We hope you all had a great time as well."

As OK! previously reported, the "I Want Candy" singer was found dead in his bathroom on Saturday, November 5, and emergency services were immediately called to the scene. Prescription pill bottles and cannisters of compressed air were discovered near his body.

It was later revealed he passed without a formal will in place.

Although Nick and Aaron's relationship was rocky over the years, with the younger brother often accusing his older sibling of "bullying" him throughout their lives, the 42-year-old only had love for him in a heartfelt Instagram tribute shared on Sunday, November 6.

"Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded," Nick wrote at the time. "I have always held onto the hope, that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed."

"Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss. But the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here," he continued. "I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz., now you get a chance to finally have some peace you could never find here on earth."
