“Grief,” she started in her caption of the post which featured a carousel of throwback photos and videos with Ron. “This one is a battle.”
Jasmine went on, “I keep looking at my phone wanting to call you and wanting to hear your voice. You listened… you REALLY listened to me. You valued my opinion and you never judged me. We all know you were a great actor but my god you were a damn good father.”
“Your best gift to me as a father was giving me a safe space to just be me. Not afraid of my womanhood and all the pain and awkwardness and social anxiety and tough burdens that society can put on us. You understood that. You led me. Mentored me. Gut laughed with me. Cried with me. Sang with me. Celebrated me. Studied with me. Cared for me… and loved me.”
Jasmine started to conclude her tribute, writing, “There’s so much so say, but I don’t have many words. I just love you so much. I miss you beyond words. I still feel you here with me and I will carry you in my heart forever.”
Following his passing, Ron‘s former co-stars, including from This Is Us, shared their own tributes.
