Bailee Madison has taken to Instagram to let her friends and fans know that one of her good friends, Brooke Hester (aka Brooke Blossoms) has passed away.
Earlier in the month, the 15-year-old actress hopped on social media to raise prayers for the young girl who had cancer and got support from a ton of her fans and celeb friends.
“I’ve never had to write something like this before, so please bear with me, as I try to adequately describe how my heart is feeling…. Our sweet angel Brooke Hester (@brookesblossoms ) has indeed become an angel today & passed away with her family by her side.. I am reliving the precious moments that I had the honor to have with Brooke & I believe that that is a major testament to who she was,” Bailee wrote.
She continued, “Someone who always found the light in the darkest times & spread joy in the saddest. Brooke was like no other, she wasn’t defined by her battle instead she was defined by her heart of Gold. Brooke spread love, inspiration and faith every moment of her life and used her battle to raise awareness for other kids. She touched the hearts of every person she met, her smile lit up the world & her voice is something that I will always remember.”
