Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown paid a heartbreaking tribute to her grandmother on Tuesday.
In her touching post, the 16-year-old actress revealed the sad news that her beloved grandmother has died after Alzheimer's. She also described some of her precious memories of staying at her grandmother's home when she was a young child.
Next to a clip of the British actress hugging her grandmother, Millie began: “Right now there are no words that make sense. There is no sense of pinpointing.

Loss: Millie Bobby Brown wrote a heartbreaking tribute to her grandmother Tuesday after she died of Alzheimer's disease
& # 39; Alzheimer's is bad. It's cruel. Taking away from someone the ability to recall memories and then function like a human. It's so hard to sit there and watch. & # 39;
She continued, “I will always be your Millie Moss. I hope you watch over me and protect me like you did when I was little. & # 39;
Millie spoke of her love for her grandmother when she wrote, “I loved you more than anyone could ever love. I am telling everyone about you and the lessons you taught me. I thank you every day for the laughter and memories you have given me so far in my whole life. & # 39;
Millie went on to review her stays at & # 39; Nanny Ruth's House & # 39; and how much fun they would have together.
“When I played outside for hours with all the kids. She sat there by the window and said, "don't go too far", "stay close", "it's time to come in". I ran in and ham, bread, french fries and beans were on my plate with a Capri sun and we sat across from each other and told her what I had done that day.

Kisses: & # 39; I couldn't come home to cuddle you one last time because of Covid-19, so FaceTime was all we had. & # 39; Mille revealed
“I used to sing to her after dinner, or we'd do a crossword puzzle while I was sitting on her lap. Midnight would come and we would be in bed and she would tell me stories about her memories as a child and what it was like to experience WWII. & # 39;
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Millie stated that she could not be with her grandmother in her final moments.
“I couldn't come home to cuddle you one last time because of Covid-19, so FaceTime was all we had. I sang to you as much as my voice could take, even when you were sleeping. These are memories I will never forget. She really is my guardian angel.
Millie finished her note, “I love you, nanny. There is no forgetting of a soul like this. I hope time will heal something. But now I'm going to hug mom and watch videos of us singing and dancing. Just rest x & # 39;
Dream: Millie recently announced that she would like to play the late soul singer Amy Winehouse on the big screen
Millie has since said she would like to play Amy Winehouse in a biopic. The Enola Holmes actress announced that she would like to portray the late singer on the big screen, even though she was only seven when Amy passed away in 2011 at the age of 27.
In a recent video for Netflix Latinoamerica, Millie was asked which historical figure she would like to bring to life on screen, to which she replied, “I wouldn't say it's historical, but I'd like to say Amy Winehouse.
