It’s a somber time in the Walker clan as Letoya Luckett and her husband, Tommicus Walker, mourn the loss of Walker’s mother, Ruby.

In an Instagram caption, it was revealed that Ruby succumbed to a battle with cancer.

Luckett took to Instagram Wednesday to also remember the woman Ruby was.

“I still can’t believe I’m writing this. It’s hard to think we were just singing one of your favorite songs, ‘I Won’t Complain’ as you lay in bed in unbearable pain,” the singer began in the lengthy caption. “In that moment, I realized your strength and your unshakable faith in God.”

Luckett, who now stars in T.I. and Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, added that although Ruby was her “mother-in-love,” she was also her “friend , confidant, [and] prayer partner, who I could call anytime to share a laugh with.”

The singer went onto thank Ruby for “holding the family down. Thank you for always having an encouraging word. Thank you for loving me and being there.”
