Porsha Williams is mourning the loss of two of her relatives. She confirmed the passing of her Aunt Louve and Uncle Torrey in a touching and emotional Instagram post that she shared on Friday (June 26).
Porsha posted throwback photos of her aunt, and recalled the life lessons she learned from the New Jersey native as she continues her glamorous legacy.
"Yesterday I laid to rest one of my favorite aunts. My beautiful loving auntie Louve. She was the type of auntie when she came in town from up north, which is what we country folks call New Jersey, I just had to see her. Aunt Louve had style, grace, charisma and the warmest spirit," Porsha wrote. "I actually would probably still be a cute lil Tomboy if it wasn’t for auntie coming down one summer and saying to me 'Porshaaa we have to do something with these brows, it’s time to refine that beauty baby' in her Jersey accent, lol. She went upstairs, grabbed the [tweezers] and that’s when I learned 'Beauty is pain'. I hate that she didn’t get to meet my 1st born PJ, but I know she will be watching us and protecting us from heaven. Rest In Peace our beautiful angel Auntie Louve."
In the same set of photos, The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member also remembered her father's brother, Torrey, who she confirmed passed away earlier this month.
"I also lost my late father's lil brother Uncle Torrey June 1st. When I was younger uncle Torrey lived with my dad. Torrey was that super cool big uncle that actually took the time to play with myself and my brothers. Uncle Torrey had such a playful spirit," she recalled. "I remember he used to LOVE running up and scaring us, then tickling us until we peed on ourselves, lol."
Porsha concluded the tributes with this important message: "It’s crazy when loved ones pass away and you reflect you then realize how so much of how you are is from how you were loved. I definitely can see how I have a lot of their personality traits here and there. Rest In Peace Uncle Torrey. Love hard and cherish the ones near and dear to you."
