“Real Housewives of Miami” star Dr. Nicole Martin revealed that her father suddenly and unexpectedly passed away.
“I haven’t been able to find the words and still can’t,” she wrote via Instagram Sunday alongside a series of photos of her father.
“Everything happened so fast and it still doesn’t seem real. Part of me is still waiting for one of your crazy phone calls. So many things left unsaid and moments we didn’t share.”
The reality star, 39, continued, “Trying not to dwell on the missed moments and focusing on the improvements we made. You had a zest for life and I know you’re having a party up in heaven. Rest in peace dad. Love you. 🙏❤️.”
The circumstances surrounding her father’s death have not been released.
Martin’s co-stars, including Guerdy Abraira, took to the comment section to share their condolences.
“I love you so much my beautiful friend. This thanksgiving as you mourn, also be thankful for the good times. I’m so happy that your last moments with him were positive and loving,” Abraira, 45, wrote, adding that the “good memories” were all that “mattered.”
“He was the life of the party and always so positive and THAT is definitely a vibe to live by, counting each day as a blessing. ❤️🙏🏾.”
