“Thank you for the kind words. It was an emotional day yesterday losing my grandpa, but an honor to stand on stage with his last name and do what I love knowing he had the best seat in the house. me and my family appreciate the thoughts and prayers,” she wrote on Instagram.
The next day, Kelsea announced that her grandmother had also passed on.
“Grandma joined grandad in heaven this morning. Married 62 years and only lived without each other 39 hours. That’s the kind of love we can all only pray to find and keep. Bittersweet few days losing them both, but smiling knowing they are together continuing their love story. Again, thank you for the thoughts and prayers to my family. Especially my daddy,” she wrote.
