‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette Remembers Her Dad in Touching Church Tribute

by Shelby Scott

While “NCIS” alum Pauley Perrette’s beloved Abby Sciuto was for her alternative personality, the forensic scientist also attended church each Sunday and was devoted in her beliefs. Simultaneously, while All Saints’ Day fell on November 1st, Perrette observed the religious holiday today in memory of her father and so many others who succumbed to the coronavirus pandemic within the last year or more.

During her church’s observance, the “NCIS” alum stated she lit candles not only for her father but for those across the world who are no longer here at the hands of COVID-19. “So much loss in the last year, it’s almost unbearable,” the star wrote.

And beneath her meaningful post, “NCIS” and Pauley Perrette fans and followers alike shared their sorrows and sympathy regarding the day of observance.

“I pray for betterment,” wrote one follower, while another shared, “There were many candles in my church today too. So much loss, so much heartache.”

Others sympathized and shared prayers and good vibes with the former “NCIS” actress. “Much love to you and many blessings,” shared one follower. “Take care PauleyP,” said another.

In the broader sense, for folks who’ve lost someone to the ongoing pandemic, know we keep you in our thoughts and continue to hope for an end to this global tragedy.

‘NCIS’ Star Offered Support Following Death of Perrette’s Father

One of the biggest values throughout “NCIS’s” long 19 seasons on the air surrounds family and loyalty to that family. And true to its mark, just as the beloved characters are onscreen, the “NCIS” cast members remain loyal to each other even after some have departed.

After alum Pauley Perrette’s father passed away due to COVID-19 in July, current “NCIS” actor Brian Dietzen was immediately there for his friend and former costar.

Following her father’s passing, Perrette expressed anger and desperation in a post on Twitter. She stated, “I WANT MORE,” in reference to available vaccines. She called the virus a cruel thief in her grief, accompanied by pictures of her father on a respirator.

In response, Dietzen, ever supportive of his friends on and off the set of “NCIS,” wrote, “So sorry my friend. Hoping and praying for many more shots in arms.”

Now, as the “NCIS” alum has battled out the last few months without her father, we can only hope she’s coping better and that in lighting candles, she’s able to maintain that connection with him even now.
