Jennifer Love Hewitt paid tribute to her late mother Patricia in an Instagram post on Sunday, marking the 10-year anniversary of her death following a battle with cancer.
The 43-year-old actress shared a photo of herself sitting with her late mother, as both were smiling in the picture.
‘Today is 10 years since losing my best friend,’ Hewitt said. ‘Someone told me after losing my mom that the first year would feel impossible, the years after would build strength in me and then the 10 year mark would be an open wound all over again. Because it would feel insane to have been without her that long. They were right.’

The Waco, Texas native said that the anniversary felt ‘very raw,’ triggering painful memories.
‘I will never forget not making it to say goodbye,’ Hewitt said. ‘I will never forget walking into her house that day and hoping somehow she would come around the corner, waking up the day after praying it was all a bad dream.
‘The countless times I called her by accident when something good or bad happened because I forgot she couldn’t pick up.’
The 9-1-1 actress said that while she’s ‘proud of the way [she’s] handled grief,’ she wishes ‘it wasn’t so painful.’
