The pregnant reality star beautifully wrote, "A year ago today, his journey onto the after life began. He ran into the arms of his mother in heaven, as he skipped free, and unencumbered."

"He is definitely present in me every single day in my spirit, actions and words. I will always strive hard to possess his LOVE, compassion, generosity, bravery, intellect, street smarts and common sense. He was a do-er. I make it my legacy to help people the way he did," the 46-year-old continued.
