Paris Jackson has shared a loving tribute to her grandfather Joe Jackson, after he passed away at the age of 89 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
In the candid Instagram post Paris, 20, remembers Joe as “one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live.”
Paris, who also lost her father Michael in 2009, reveals that Joe was surrounded with family during his final moments. “Spending those last few moments with you were everything,” she wrote.
“I will cherish every moment with you till the day I die, especially our last moments. Being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you’ll ever know. Quoting advice you gave me when i was a little kid and seeing your eyes light up, sharing stories my dad used to tell me about you, telling a joke and hearing you laugh for the last time.. My heart is full knowing we left each other in that way,” the model and activist revealed alongside a photo of her hand holding Joe’s hand.
