Actress Lisa Vidal has shared a raw and honest post about how she’s feeling on Mother’s Day after the death of her 28-year-old son, Scott, last month – and it’s an important reminder to love and cherish even the littlest moments with the people we love.
The Being Mary Jane and Baker & The Beauty star took to Instagram to describe her heartache and emptiness:
“My dear friends…my heart is broken, shattered into 1 million pieces. I’m in catastrophic grief,” she begins, sharing a gallery of photos of Scott from his childhood to his adult years. (Swipe to see.)

“How I loved you son…so very deeply. How I will always love you…and how I so very much treasured being your mom, the greatest gift of all, the greatest treasure, the greatest honour, the greatest present that God could give us,” Lisa continues.
“You will always and forever be in my heart…I hold on to and treasure all our talks, our hugs, our date nights and your glorious infectious smile and laugh. It was an honour to be your mom. Thank you son for choosing me and blessing me with your life, love and gift. You’re my angel. Rest in Peace my son..I will see you again and we will dance and hug forever.”
Lisa also used the opportunity to honour all mothers for their hard work and dedication to their families:
“To all my beautiful mothers out there, I send you love, blessings, strength and I honour all of you for doing all the things you do and being all the things you are to all of your loved ones.”
She ended her post with the hashtags #HoldThemTight and #LoveThemEveryDay.
