Olivia Reveals Her Mother’s Passing In Tear-Jerking Post

News

After taking some time to grieve, Olivia took to Instagram on Tuesday night (Nov. 6) to share the heartbreaking news of her mother’s passing.

“How do you heal from a broken heart,” she asked her IG followers under a slideshow of family photos. “I’m literally crying as I write this to you guys but I pray this will help me to get it out. I have been completely distraught & broken these past few weeks.”

Olivia went on to reveal that her mother, June Cleaver, lost her life to Parkinson’s Disease at the age of 74 on Oct. 9. Diagnosed with the early stages of the disease in 2014, Cleaver spent the following years fighting an upward battle. “By 2016 my mom was drastically losing weight and could hardly do regular things on her own,” Olivia said. “My dad is the epitome of true love and humbleness. He took such great care of her in sickness and in health.”

In remembering her final birthday celebration on Aug. 23, Olivia commemorated the beauty of her mother’s life and asked the Lord for his guidance in navigating this difficult time.

“I know she is in a better place, with her Lord & Savior and no more suffering,” Olivia said. “But I do not know what to do without her. Please pray for me and my family. Lord help us through.”

How do you heal from a broken heart. I’m literally crying as I write this to you guys but I pray this will help me to get it out. I have been completely distraught & broken these past few weeks. My beautiful mom left this earth on October 9, 2018. She was diagnosed with early signs of Parkinson’s in 2014. By 2016 my mom was drastically losing weight and could hardly do regular things on her own. My dad is the epitome of true love and humbleness. He took such great care of her in sickness and in health. My dad was married to my mom for 40yrs. I’m so grateful she made it to her 74th birthday On August 23, as we celebrated her and surrounded her with love and care. My father misses his wife dearly & I truly miss my mom. I know she is in a better place, with her Lord & Savior and no more suffering. But I do not know what to do without her. 🙏🏽 Please pray for me and my family. Lord help us through.
