Yolanda Hadid took to Instagram on Saturday morning to pay tribute to her mother, Ans van den Herik, who died at the age of 78.
"RIP my guardian angel Mama," Gigi and Bella Hadid's mom wrote alongside a slideshow of black-and-white photographs of her late mother. "Thank you for loving me the way the way that you did and for making me the woman that I am today."
"On angel wings you were taken away, but in my heart you will always stay," she continued. "I cannot imagine this life without you but I pray that I will hear you whisper in the tallest trees and feel your love in the gentle breeze... When I miss you the most, our beautiful memories will hold you close... Our Love is eternal and you will always be with me and i will always be with you beyond the bounds of this realm."
"Rest In Peace my beautiful mama, I will honor you for the rest of my days..... Until we meet again, I LOVE YOU. Yolanda," she concluded.
