Melyssa Ford pays tribute to late co-star Daisy Lewellyn

Last year, Daisy Lewellyn passed away, and with a year passing, Melyssa Ford is marking the anniversary of her Blood Sweat & Heels co-star’s death.

“It’s been a year to the day that @daisylewellyn passed away,” Ford wrote on a picture of the two of them together. “The day of her funeral I came home, sat on my back deck and stared at the mountains for 2 hours, trying to reconcile that one of the brightest, funniest, most caring women I had ever met had died at the age of 36. She was becoming successful, but she also wanted to be married and to have children; yet her life was cut short and it just didn’t make sense. And it HURT.”

She continued:

I made a pledge to her and myself that day that I would live my best life, for both of us. I would tell my loved ones they are loved every chance I got; I would fight injustices wherever and however I could; I would travel the world and experience everything possible, with or without fear.

She inspired me in life, and continues to inspire me in the spirit she’s left behind. I still cry when I think about her: how much she wanted to CONNECT with her loved ones, knowing the end was near. I’m crying as I write this. But I’m just so GRATEFUL I had the opportunity to know her and to truly come to understand what part of our purpose is here on this earth: to share with one another, to love as hard as possible without fear, to experience as much as we can pack into our little bags before we are called back. #Daisy

Lewellyn lost her battle to liver cancer a year ago at just 36. The author and reality star shared her inspiring, yet heartbreaking journey on the Bravo series.

Sending love and well wishes to Daisy Lewellyn’s family and friends.
