“These are memories I’ll never forget.”
Millie Bobby Brown’s grandmother recently passed away from Alzheimer’s. Last night, the Enola Holmes and Stranger Things star posted a heartbreaking tribute to her on Instagram.
“Loss is something so complex and I go thru spells where I [can’t] stop crying,” she wrote, “and then I laugh about all the memories and then sit quiet and try to comprehend what happened.”

She continued: “Alzheimer’s is evil. [It’s] cruel. Taking away [someone’s] ability to remember memories and then how to function like a human being. [It’s] so hard to sit there and watch.”

After promising her late grandmother that she’ll “always be [her] millie moos” and reminiscing about good times with her, Brown expressed regret about how the coronavirus pandemic kept them apart this year.

“I couldn’t come home to give u one last snuggle because of Covid-19 so FaceTime was all that we had. I sang to you as much as my voice could take it, even when u were sleeping,” she recalled.
