‘You Are Truly A Guardian Angel’ – Rihanna Shares Heartfelt Note To Grandpa

Rihanna always holds her family close to her heart and now, the award winning singer has shared a rare photo of her maternal grandfather, Lionel Braithwaite, who has just turned 88.

It was ‘only’ 61 years ago that you met my 17 year old grandma #Dolly and bought out her entire tray of mangoes, just so she didn’t have to work and could spend the rest of the day with you,” the singer said in the photo of her hugging the octogenarian.

She continued in the heartfelt note, “The ship from Barbados that you worked on left you in Guyana that day!! I bless God for that day…. it was the beginning of many blessings to come! My whole existence depended on that very day!”

And her granddaddy has always being her number one fan. This February, he made a grand appearance at her Puma show, accompanied by her mother Monica and her other family members.

Now, she extols her granddaddy’s character, and how he is their protector sent from heaven.

“Your strength, love, prayers, discipline, sense of humor and STUBBORNNESS 👀are just a few of the things we love about you, and why you’re truly our guardian angel sent to us from Heaven,” she says now.

Captain of the ship….my grandfather #Bravo ! Such an inspiration to the 4 generations that came after you (so far) and as a result of you! It was "only" 61 years ago that you met my 17 year old grandma #Dolly and bought out her entire tray of mangoes, just so she didn't have to work and could spend the rest of the day with you! The ship from Barbados that you worked on left you in Guyana that day!! I bless God for that day…. it was the beginning of many blessings to come! My whole existence depended on that very day! Your strength, love, prayers, discipline, sense of humor and STUBBORNNESS 👀are just a few of the things we love about you, and why you're truly our guardian angel sent to us from Heaven! I love you with all my heart, and I'm so happy that God spared you to see the 88th year of your life!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY OG!!!
