Jennifer Williams is coping with the death of her mother by sharing a heartfelt message with her Instagram followers.

Over Christmas, the former Basketball Wives star was grateful to be spending time with her mother and was optimistic that she would pull through. "I also got the best gift ever which was the news that my mother no longer qualifies for the hospice as her condition is not progressing," she Instagrammed last week. "To God be the glory, Merry Christmas.. Thank you to all the prayer warriors 🙏🏽 #PeaceOutHospice."

But on Tuesday, she revealed to her 491,000 Instagram followers that her mother had died. "Heaven just got another angel... Little did I know when you pulled me in to kiss me and say I love you yesterday it would be my final goodbye here on earth," she captioned an old photo of her mom. "You are my everything and will always be my everything! Everything I do is for you."

Jennifer writes that her mission has always been to make her mother proud. "Everybody says you are in a better place but honestly I don't want to hear that sh**! Real talk, I want to call you and talk to you about my dreams and get your advice," she continued. "I just know you will be watching over me and guiding me to make the right decisions. I promise to make you proud, I'm about to kill it Mom!"

The 41-year-old reality star also shared two other photos of her late mother. "Gorgeous inside and out," she captioned one of the pics. "Rest with the Angels #ILoveUMom 💔"
