Lacey Chabert is mourning the death of her older sister Wendy.
The 39-year-old “Mean Girls” star called her sister’s passing a “shocking loss” in a tribute Tuesday on Instagram. Alongside the image of Wendy’s 1994 high school portrait, Chabert wrote: “My beautiful sister, Wendy. Our hearts are shattered into a million pieces that I don’t know how we’ll put them back together now that you’re gone.”
He continued: “We love and adore you more than we can say and we will continue to do so forever and ever. The shocking loss has left us heartbroken. Our lives will never be the same without my dear sister, but hold on to the promises of Jesus that we will be together again in eternity. “
Chabert concluded his post with a plea to fans to keep his family members, including Wendy’s two children, in their prayers.
Chabert’s friends in Hollywood, including fellow Hallmark Channel star Candace Cameron Bure, responded to his post to share their condolences.
‘We are praying for you, your family and Wendy’s family. We love you, always here for you my sweet sweet friend, “wrote Bure.
Former “Wonder Years” star Danica McKellar wrote: “OMG Lacey. I love you so much and send you prayers and love. I don’t know what I could do, but give me a call if I can. Nothing at all.”
“Sabrina the Teenage Witch” alum Melissa Joan Hart also chimed in to let Chabert know she was thinking of her. “I am devastated and heartbroken! I am so sorry Lacey! I am sending you so much love!” she wrote.
Chabert, who is featured in the upcoming Hallmark Channel Christmas romantic comedy “Christmas at Castle Hart,” honored both Wendy and her other sister, Crissy, on National Sisters Day in August on Instagram.
Chabert posted a memory of the three sisters as children posing in front of a Christmas tree.
“I couldn’t let #National Sisters Day go by without saying how much I love my two sisters,” she wrote in her caption. “They are the best older sisters ever and I thank God for them every day. I love them, Wendy and Crissy.”
