Actress Connie Ferguson penned a heartfelt tribute to her brother Moses who died recently, on his birthday, honouring his memory.

In an Instagram post from the heart, Connie wished her "heavenly" brother a happy birthday, being the first one she has celebrated without him. In the post, Connie shared that she misses her older brother deeply and believes that heaven has gained an angel his death.

“Happy first heavenly birthday big bro. I love you and I miss you so much! Rest Budas. We may have lost you here but we’ve gained an angel in heaven,” the star wrote.

She went on to give a shoutout to her mother, who died eight years ago, saying she is sure she is singing the loudest for her big brother.

“I'm sure mom is singing the loudest for you there. Love and miss you both so much!,"  said Connie.

Earlier this month, the actress announced the tragic news of her brother's death in a lengthy, heartfelt message.

I thank God that I was able to spend some time with you on Pops’ birthday. After so many years! I believe this was God’s way of giving us the opportunity to say goodbye, to build final memories together, and to celebrate life one final time together,” she wrote.

In May this year, Connie and her six siblings gathered to celebrate their father Tuelo Masilo on his 85th birthday.

Little did she know it was the last time she would see her brother.

“Today, heaven and earth had to move for all his seven children and Karate children to gather and celebrate their hero!” she posted at the time.
