Basketball Wives star Brooke Bailey is grieving the loss of her 25-year-old daughter, Kayla Bailey, who died on September 25.

Brooke paid tribute to her daughter on September 26 with a series of photos of her on Instagram — in some recent ones, Kayla strikes model-esque poses, and in some older pictures, she’s an adorable small child.

Brooke’s heart-wrenching caption reads, “Forever my baby, Pretty Black aka Kayla Nicole Bailey. This is not a goodbye. Mommy will see you soon.”
