Ariana Grande and Frankie Grande’s mom Joan Grande has reacted to her father’s passing on social media. Joan sent out the following notes, thanking fans for all of their support:
I am so grateful to see the tremendous outpouring of love and support for my family. We are hurting but seeing your responses we are soothed.
I am so lucky because I had the greatest father in the world. He truly was a gentleman, and incredible role model. I love him so much!
Thank you to the fan bases that joined forces to send us love.. there will be a moment when we read all of it and we will heal! But for now.
Thanks to @CBSBigBrother & @RyanSeacrest & @GMA for showing so much support to my children! I send my love and respect! Thank you again!
Our thoughts are with Joan and her family during this very sad time.
