The Bravo personality posted the (above) photo with the heartbreaking message:
“Today I lost the only woman in the world who has ever loved me unconditionally. My grandmother who raised me from 3 days old passed away. Thank you Jehovah for sending me your Angel who taught me everything I know about love, compassion, strength, kindness, selflessness, forgiveness, family, education, brains over beauty, inner beauty, strength, respect for your elders, being true to myself….she has helped mold me into the woman I am. She truly was my best friend.”
On her hit reality TV show, Miss USA has been vocal about the strong bond she’s had with her grandma, as opposed to the tumultuous relationship she’s had with her biological mother.
Even though losing Doris is horrible, Moore is grateful for the moments they’ve shared together, especially when Doris met her new husband Marc Daly.
“Thank you Jehovah for allowing my last moment with her last month to be the last and for her to have met my loving husband. I truly believe she waited until she knew that I finally found someone to love and cherish me the way she did. She could not rest until she knew I would be taken care of by someone who deserved me. She didn’t recognize me at first but when I introduced them but she lit up with so much joy that my heart became overwhelmed. She approved and it was the happiest day of my life.”
Overall, the 46-year-old knows her grandma will always be by her side, and will always cherish her “unconditional love.”
“Thank you momma for being the best woman I have ever met in my life. Thank you for approving of me and thank you for letting the world know how proud you are of me. I thank you for my life. I owe the world to you. I know you will never leave my side in life or after. I am eternally grateful to you. Thank you for loving me. #unconditionallove #God#gonebutneverforgotten #family #myangel”
R.I.P. Doris. You will be missed.
