Harder than I thought … I”m in shock and devastation,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post. “6:32 PM EST, my sweet, perfect, amazing, heroic, wonderful dada passed away after my family and I said goodbye. It was COVID-19 that cut my sweet daddy’s life too short. I appreciate more than you know, the love and support my family and I have received.”

“My dad was hilarious, boisterous, tenacious, rebellious, intelligent, sweet, incredible human being. He loved life. He loved his family,” she continued. “He loved a cup of coffee (black, heated up for 66 seconds). He LOVED a good Knish (but ONLY in the winter). He loved BBQ’ing (and while we loved brown mustard he only wanted French’s Yellow). He loved Breyer’s ice cream (strawberry, vanilla and chocolate NEO style). he loved droop songs, specifically, ‘I Wonder Why’ by Dion and The Belmonts and ‘Under The Boardwalk’ by the Drifters.”

“He loved dogs and cats and all animals and he especially loved hearing funny stories about my pets in particular. He’s always say, ‘abba dabba you’ve got that animal lover in you just like me.’He loved taking pictures and flying planes and good dinners and music from the 50’s and 60’s and good couches and Kenyan mountain coffee and funny YouTube videos and email threads and weird poems and politics and he loved me and he loved my brothers and he loved my mom,” she wrote.

“And we loved him, And we always will. I miss you daddy. I can’t wait to see you again. I won’t ever, ever, ever forget you. To the moon and back dada,” Breslin added. “Love, yours forever, Abs.”
