Caitlyn Jenner, who is now 73 years old and has won a gold medal at the Olympics, took to Instagram to share a touching memory from her life. In a message that was filled with emotion, she shared a photograph of herself delivering a eulogy at the funeral of her mother, Esther Jenner, who had passed away on April 20 at the age of 96.
The Instagram photo was accompanied by a message from Caitlyn, in which she expressed the emotional hardship of the event with particular emphasis. My mother passed away yesterday, and I had the privilege of delivering a speech during the memorial service for her. According to what she wrote, “It was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do.” Caitlyn followed the post by expressing how much she misses her mother and reflecting on the thoughts that she has about her mother on a daily basis following her passing. She further stated, “She was dearly loved and will be sorely missed, but she is now in a better place.”
In the comments section of the post, Caitlyn Jenner’s son, Brandon Jenner, expressed his affection for his grandmother and reminisced about her. A touching moment was shared by Brandon in the comment area, where he revealed, “So glad I got to say a last goodbye over the phone.” After that, he proceeded to tell a comical narrative, in which he related a memorable bit of advice that his grandmother had given him: “She told me, among the billowing smoke in her condo, that ‘it’s not the cigarettes that will kill you; it’s the filters that will kill you.'”
After continuing to ruminate on the one-of-a-kind way of life that his grandmother led, Brandon made the following statement: “She rolled her own her entire life, right up until the age of 96.” In a lighthearted manner, he made the suggestion that her unique attitude to smoking might have contained some sage advice. The final part of Brandon’s humorous departure was when he said, “Grandma, we’ll catch up with you on the other side.”
Even Caitlyn Jenner’s daughter, Kylie Jenner, participated in the conversation by sending a series of white love emojis as a response. She expressed her feelings through the use of symbols through her response. Because of the difficult circumstances that the Jenner family is going through, the comments area of the post has become a place for friends and family members may express their support and share their memories.
