Yvette Nicole Brown is mourning her "sweet mama" Fran.

On Friday, May 29, the Community alum took to Instagram to share the news of Fran's death with her followers. Alongside a photo of her mother, Yvette wrote, "I am devastated. I don't have the words. Thankfully, my big brother does."

She continued, "I didn't share what my family was dealing with because it was too big. It still is—especially dealing with it so far away from home. I'm still processing how and why this had to happen now like this. I may never understand. But I trust His Will. That's all I know to do. Thank you for all the prayers. Sadly, God had other plans. I love you, my sweet mama. Always."

That same day, the Drake & Josh star posted several snapshots of herself with her lookalike mom, alongside the caption, "Until we meet again." 

Yvette received an outpouring of love in the comments section of her Instagram post. Actress Meredith Salenger wrote, "Oh Yvette. I'm so sorry for your loss. What a lucky mama she was to have had you as her loving daughter. Hugs upon hugs. I'm around the corner if u want me to come be with you. Anything u need."
