Sad news emerged this weekend for a member of Bachelor Nation as Krisily Kennedy’s father passed away after battling cancer.
Krisily — who was Bachelor Charlie O’Connell’s runner-up in Season 7 and also competed on Bachelor Pad Season 1 — addressed her dad’s tragic passing on Twitter on February 23. “I believe in the power of prayer, so if you could, please keep my dad in your prayers tonight as he ends his fight with cancer,” Krisily tweeted.
On February 24, Krisily shared an adorable throwback photo of her dad helping a dressed-up Krisily to ride a tricycle on the carpet from back in the day. “I don't know what my life looks like without you in it, but I know I will miss you every day,” Krisily captions the Instagram shot. “No more pain, no more suffering RIP Dad I will always love you.”
Losing a parent is tough no matter what, and the photo shows just how caring he was. Krisily recently dealt with another major loss when Gia Allemand passed away in August 2013. Krisily was among several of Gia’s Bachelor Nation friends who attended her funeral.
Now, a number of Bachelor Nation folks are offering their condolences to Krisily by commenting on the photo of her dad. Bachelor Pad co-star Peyton Lambton wrote, “I'm thinking about you....call me if you want to talk.”
It’s terrible that Krisily’s dad has lost his battle, and our thoughts are with her family and loved ones during this very difficult time. Krisily always impressed us with her strength and humor on the shows, and we’re wishing her all the best.
