Orlando Bloom is honoring his Grandma Dorrie. 

The 41-year-old British actor took to Instagram late Thursday night to reflect on his grandmother’s life in her final days. 

"Cherish the memories and moments and celebrate and respect the life,” he captioned a series of photos of himself with Dorrie. “We all smile we live we laugh and we embrace a grandmother a mother a sister an aunt a wife a girlfriend a daughter a friend a child a newborn we are born we grow old we get sick and we die this we know so love and give love.”

In the photos, Bloom is holding and kissing his grandma’s hand as she sits up in bed. He goes on to reveal that she’s currently very sick and that she’s not expected to live much longer.
