Catherine Zeta-Jones Thanks Fans for Their Support Following Kirk Douglas' Death

'My whole family appreciated every word.'

Catherine Zeta-Jones and her husband, Michael Douglas, are expressing their gratitude. In an Instagram post on Sunday, the 50-year-old actress shared a snap of Michael with his dad, Kirk Douglas.

The post came just days after the elder Douglas died at age 103.

"Michael joins me in thanking you all for your overwhelming love, kind words and prayers since the passing of my father in law Kirk," she captioned the photo. "My whole family appreciated every word. Love to you all❤️"

Catherine previously mourned her father-in-law on social media by sharing a black-and-white photo of herself kissing his cheek.

"To my darling Kirk, I shall love you for the rest of my life. I miss you already. Sleep tight...," she wrote alongside the pic. 

Michael also posted a tribute online following his dad's death, writing in part, "Kirk's life was well-lived, and he leaves a legacy in film that will endure for generations to come, and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to aid the public and bring peace to the planet."

"I love you so much and I am proud to be your son," he added.

On Friday, Kirk was laid to rest at the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park and Mortuary in Los Angeles. Catherine and Michael were in attendance, as was Kirk's wife of 65 years, Anne Buydens, and his two other sons, Peter and Joel Douglas. Michael's son, Cameron Douglas, also attended the funeral.
