"Last year was the first Father’s Day I didn’t have my dad. I sat and cried, watching this waterfall, trying to understand how this happened. How my life had changed forever, overnight. Today, I feel the same way. Each moment that goes by without him I just think, damn I haven’t seen his face in over a year. ... I haven’t hugged him, or heard his voice. To say my heart is broken is an understatement," she wrote on Instagram.

She continued, "I will go forward in my life finding comfort in knowing he is looking down on me, being my angel like he has always been. Looking at the father my fiancé is to his two little girls is enough to make my heart explode. His girls look at him the way I looked at my dad. Even tho today is sad, I can’t help but feel happy and blessed. From my dad, to my brothers, & my incredible fiancé, the men in my life are, and will be, amazing fathers."
