Famous Instagram model Paulina Gretzky took to social media on Friday evening to share a personal message to her late grandfather.

Gretzky is the daughter of former National Hockey League legend, Wayne Gretzky. And she also just so happens to be one of the top sights to see on all of social media. Gretzky is widely known for her stunning beauty and her luxurious photoshoots.

However, on Friday evening, the Instagram model penned a message to her grandfather, who had just recently passed away. She also includes an adorable photo of her as a young child giving her grandpa a kiss on the cheek. In the touching post, she says that she will miss him and his trivia that she “could never answer.”

“Grandpa, I miss you and will always cherish the moments we spent together,” Paulina Gretzky wrote alongside the photo. “Most of all, I will miss your trivia, that I could never answer.”

Gretzky continues her message, calling her grandfather a role model to so many people.

“You were a role model to me and so many others. You had the unique ability to light up every room you walked into. I love you, Grandpa, I know you and Grandma are looking over all of us together. Until we meet again 🕊…”

Paulina Gretzky Fans React to Post

Paulina Gretzky’s heartfelt post to her grandfather has already racked up more than 32,000 likes since being posted online earlier tonight. Gretzky fans took to the model’s comments to share their heartfelt condolences along with some memories of her grandpa.

One fan, mattyjharris11, replied saying, “Canada’s hockey Dad touched so many lives. Seen him at so many rinks during my lifetime, and he always made time to stop and talk to everyone.”

Another user on Instagram, ❤️, wrote, “A Canadian treasure – so very sorry for your loss.”

And finally, lisafrancesfenton, left a message saying what we were all thinking. She commented saying, “This is the most beautiful picture 😢😍.”

It’s without a question been a hard time for Paulina Gretzky. However, it has to be somewhat relieving having hundreds of thousands of people send her well wishes. And while it probably won’t be long before the supermodel gets back to posting her playful photos to Instagram, for now, we can all relate to losing a beloved member of our family.
