Like so many others, Kimora Lee Simmons is mourning the loss of her dear friend, Kim Porter.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Simmons shared several personal photos of her and Porter  as well a few snapshots of their children hanging out together over the years.

“At your homegoing celebration today it became all too real that you are not coming back. I cannot stop crying but I will be strong for you. Gone WAY too soon. Wtf. I am in shock. To my beautiful friend and sister, I love you…This is unbelievable. When I first heard the news, I was angry that someone would play such a stupid ass joke…They said you were in your room sleeping. Aoki and I rushed to your house to tell you to ‘get up and come your a— outside!’ But soon as i arrived I realized you would not come,” she posted.

“Every room I walk into now I think, ‘ok, I will just go and get Kim’ but I see that I cannot. This is all too close and too sad. Your light was a beaming beacon for so many. You are A WHOLE MOOD! You are a girls girl which is why we’ve stayed close always…We are so alike in so many ways, we shared clothes, food, attitudes, friends, enemies, the greatest happinesses and the worst sadnesses. We’ve been married, given birth, raised families, gotten divorced, experienced death and everything in between-together,” she recalled. “You are a great mama. Between us we have 8 kids who are all cousins. We are, and will always be-a family. I will look after yours and you will look after and guide us all…

What a beautiful, loving, sassy soul to have lost. We love you forever. May God bless your journey,” Simmons concluded. “We will never stop crying for you. #kimporter, #forevermylady, #rip and #blackexcellence.”
