Lacey Chabert mourns the death of her older sister Wendy.
The “Mean Girls” star, 39, called her sister’s passing a “shocking loss” in a tribute on Instagram Tuesday. 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 ever put them back together now that you’re gone.”
She continued: “We love and adore you more than we can ever say and we will forever and always. The shocking loss has left us so heartbroken. Our lives will never be the same without my dear sister, but we hold on to the promises of Jesus that we will be together again in eternity.”
Chabert closed her post with a plea to fans to keep her family members, including Wendy’s two sons, in their prayers.
Chabert’s Hollywood friends, including fellow Halmark Channel star Candace Cameron Bure, responded to her post to share their condolences.
“We pray for you, your family and Wendy’s family. We love you, are always there for you, my dear, dear friend,” Bure wrote.
Former “Wonder Years” star Danica McKellar wrote: “Oh my god Lacey. I love you so much and send prayers and love for you. I don’t know what I could do but please call me if I can do anything at all .”
“Sabrina the Teenage Witch” alum Melissa Joan Hart also agreed to let Chabert know she was thinking of her. “I’m heartbroken and heartbroken! I’m so sorry Lacey! I’m sending you so much love!” she wrote.
Chabert, who will be featured in Hallmark Channel’s upcoming Christmas rom-com, “Christmas at Castle Hart,” honored both Wendy and her other sister, Crissy, on National Sisters Day in August on Instagram.
Chabert posted a look back of all three sisters as children posing in front of a Christmas tree.
“I couldn’t let #nationalsistersday go by without saying how much I love my two sisters,” she wrote in her caption. “They are the best big sisters ever and I thank God for them every day. I love you Wendy and Crissy.”
