Tristan Thompson is reflecting on his mom’s legacy one month after her tragic death.
After his mom, Andrea Thompson, died suddenly on Jan. 5, the NBA star penned a heartbreaking message on social media in her honor.
“Dearest mommy in heaven, it has been one month since you’ve been gone,” he wrote alongside photos of their family on Instagram Feb. 5. “I’m in disbelief. I’m in the deepest part of sorrow & grief. My soul is empty as I come to terms that my biggest supporter/superhero is gone.”
Praising his mom as a hero, Tristan went on to note she “fought all the battles” in life, adding, “and it was time for you to go home.”
“Man, What I wouldn’t give to hear ur voice,” he continued. “Mommy I know you’re watching down on me; I wanna say thank you for picking me as your son.”
Following the news of Andrea’s passing in January, TMZ, citing sources with direct knowledge, reported that she suffered a heart attack at her Toronto home.
