In an Instagram post shared on Monday, Hough included several photos featuring his late grandmother, Romaine Heaton.

In his caption, Hough paid tribute to Heaton and recalled her “endless stories” that often made them “double over with laughter” and were responsible for “igniting imaginations.”

He described her love as “the kind that made you feel seen, heard, and valued, no matter what.”

“As we say goodbye, I’m reminded of all the beautiful moments we shared, and somehow if feels like she’s still here, guiding us, loving us,” Hough wrote.

“Grandma, you’ve given us so much to remember, to cherish, and to pass on. We miss you terribly, but we’re grateful for every second we got to spend with you. So long… for now you little stinker,” the IG caption said.

He wrote, “You’ll always be in our hearts, making us smile. We love you.”

Hough included several photos of him with his grandmother. The first shot featured Hough smiling next to his grandmother. A second image showed the Dancing With the Stars judge posed across his grandmother and mother’s laps in a group shot.
