It’s been one year since Rihanna’s grandmother Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite passed away, and the pop star took to Instagram to pay tribute to the woman she affectionally referred to as Gran Gran.

“Today marks one year since you crossed the bridge,” she wrote. “Still you never left…I can still remember your laugh, and I miss it, I miss the sound of your voice, your beautiful hands, the way you danced and got so happy when you heard music, I miss doing your makeup and taking your pictures, I miss the way you looked right at me, and I miss looking back at you, that proud look on your face!”

Rihanna went on to say that her love for her late grandmother goes beyond words.

“Never did I think it could be this soon, but I’m happy you’re in Heaven, laughing and dancing with the Angel,” she said. “Dolly you are my precious Angel, I love you beyond what words can describe! I just miss you Gran Gran! #Dolly #FirstAnniversary.”

This isn’t the first time RiRi paid tribute Dolly. Last year, she got a goddess in her memory and donated $1.75 million to radiotherapy department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados.
