    Rihanna is paying tribute yet again to her late grandmother Clara "Dolly" Braithwaite.

    This time, via Instagram with a touching photo and note, honoring the anniversary of her death.

    The singer writes: "Today marks one year since you crossed the bridge! Still you never left...I can still remember your laugh, and I miss it, I miss the sound of your voice, your beautiful hands, the way you danced and got so happy when you heard music, I miss doing your makeup and taking your pictures, I miss the way you looked right at me, and I miss looking back at you, that proud look on your face!"

    Her touching tribute continues: "Never did I think it could be this soon, but I'm happy you're in Heaven, laughing and dancing with the Angels! Dolly you are my precious Angel, I love you beyond what words can describe! I just miss you Gran Gran! #Dolly #FirstAnniversary"

    Rihanna paid tribute to Dolly back in December when she passed away by donating $1.75 million to the radiotherapy department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, which is now renamed the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine.

    RIP, Dolly!
