Ali Landry is thankful for the love and support she and filmmaker husband Alejandro Gomez Monteverde have received.
The former Miss America's father-in-law and brother-in-law were found dead in northern Veracruz, Mexico in September after being kidnapped and held for ransom.
Last Friday, Landry reached out on Instagram to everyone who has supported her and Monteverde during this tragic time.
"I want to thank all of you for your love, support and prayers during this time of grief," she wrote. "Yes, the events surrounding my family were tragic and what has happened will profoundly affect our lives forever, but my Father in Law was the kind of man that radiated pure joy and it was infectious."
"He loved and adored his family more than anything," Landry wrote of father-in-law Juan Manuel Gomez Fernandez. "He was a jokester, a great dancer, a crier (especially when he was talking about his sons:), and he lived his life in the present, appreciating each moment as a huge blessing. He was my husbands hero and like my second Dad."
The 42-year-old actress continued the message with words for her brother-in-law, Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde: "My brother in law was such a hard working business owner. He was an incredible salsa dancer, he was fluent in Japanese and we all looked up to him."
"When things became dangerous in Tampico a few years ago he moved his family to Estonia, Guadalajara, and then Mcallan Texas just to keep them safe," she added. "He was a wonderful friend, an amazing husband, and a great father to his two beautiful children."
"This is a painful time, and we are still processing it all," Landry concluded. "What we have realized is that this journey through grief and loss is a marathon, not a sprint, and the only way to get through it is by the grace of God. We are determined not to allow this event to define them or our lives. We want to remember the beauty, the innocence, and the light that they represented, and to continue their legacy and always put family first :) Thank you again for caring for our family!!! Love Ali."
"With a heart full of pain and sadness, I ask for prayers for my friend and 'compadre' Alejandro Gomez Monteverde and all his family," he wrote. "My deepest condolences to my soul brother, I love you so much 'compadre,' I put my heart in your hands and I join you in this deep pain."
