A former Basketball Wives star is mourning the loss of her mother just days after celebrating Christmas with her.

Jennifer Williams revealed on Instagram that her mother passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer.

“Heaven just got another angel,” Jennifer wrote in a post on Instagram that showed her mother in her younger days. “Little did I know when you pulled me in to kiss me and say I love you yesterday it would be my final goodbye here on earth.”

She continued, “I thank you for the lessons you taught me and I hope to one day be half the mother you were to me to my unborn child God willing.”

Her mother’s passing was an even deeper blow because they were celebrating the holidays together last week. Jennifer, who spent Christmas with her mother, announced just days ago that she was getting ready to get her mom out of Hospice care.

The VH1 star has continued to pay tribute to her mother with more fly vintage pics tagged with special messages.

Our condolences go out to Jennifer and her family at this time.
