Khloe Kardashian took to social media to share a beautiful tribute to Tristan Thompson‘s late mother, Andrea Thompson.
Andrea passed away suddenly on Thursday, January 5, after suffering a heart attack at her Toronto, Canada home.
Despite Khloe’s challenging and complicated relationship with Tristan, Andrea always showed her unconditional love and referred to her as her “daughter.”
In her tribute, Khloe Kardashian said that she still feels “numb” and that she chooses not to say “goodbye” because she knows she will see Andrea again.
Khloe also vowed to make sure Tristan’s baby brother, Amari is good.
Amari suffers from epilepsy, a disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, causing seizures.
In 2013, Tristan Thompson established The Amari Thompson fund to benefit Epilepsy Toronto to bring awareness and provide funding for the disorder.
In March 2022, Tristan spoke to NBC about the sacrifice his mother makes to ensure his brother is well taken care of.
“My Mom has had to sacrifice each day as well. She’s had to watch a child for basically 24-hour care. That takes her away from her own life and freedom.”
In her tribute, Khloe Kardashian wrote, “Just know, I promise you, Amari will be perfectly ok. We will all look after him, help him and protect him. Your boys will be ok because they have their guardian Angel by their side.”
Read Khloe’s full tribute below.
I have been avoiding this…. Avoiding accepting this is real. I have so much to say but nothing at all…. I have so many emotions and still I feel numb.
Life can be brutally unfair at times and This has been one of the toughest times in so many of our lives. But at the same time, I feel blessed that I am lucky to have had someone that makes saying goodbye so incredibly difficult.
So difficult that I’m choosing not to say goodbye for good because that is something I cannot fathom. Goodbyes for good are something I don’t believe in. I KNOW I will see you again.
I know I will hear your sweet voice and infectious laugh again. I know I’ll get to feel that embrace of yours. I’ll see you again with the many that have gone before you that I so desperately miss, love and cherish.
So, I’m choosing to say, that until I see you again in Heaven, I miss you and I will continue to miss you more and more every single day.
I know you are with our Lord and Savior. I know you are rejoicing up there. Dancing and singing and probably yelling “who does that!!” because we are crying at your loss. At the same time, I know you never wanted to leave your boys.
They are your entire world. They will learn to live with the hole in their hearts because they are warriors just like their warrior mommy.
Just know, I promise you, Amari will be perfectly ok. We will all look after him, help him and protect him. Your boys will be ok because they have their guardian Angel by their side.
“So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” John 16:22
I love you 🤍 I love you 🤍 I love you 🤍💔🕊️

May she rest in paradise.
