Despite having been broken up for three years, Savannah also took to social media to mourn the loss of her former partner in a lengthy, heartfelt message.

"Nicolas Henry Stephan Kerdiles… I wish you could see all the people that are showing up and loving you right now. I can see that grin of yours so clearly. You left such a mark on this world and it’s so empty without you," she wrote at the time. "It is impossible to believe that you are really gone. I am not sure how to even absorb that news, I don’t know how to react. I am so sad and so numb."

"I will always miss seeing your sweet smile and getting to see your heart on full display," she continued. "Some things aren’t supposed to last forever, some things come into our life for a season, and our season was precious, it was special, and I am and will always be a better person because I knew you, because I loved you and was loved by you."

"Thank you for our season. I am thankful and I will treasure every moment, every memory, every photo and every good day we shared together. Oh gosh… what I wouldn’t do to hear an, 'I LOVE YOU KID' right about now. Gosh! I miss you… this isn’t fair!" she concluded.
