"I lost my beautiful grandma this week," the 29-year-old wrote. "She wasn't your typical grandma. She gave me my first cup of coffee when I was 8 years old. She said something inappropriate to every boyfriend I've ever had. She never made pie or knit me a sweater. But she was my grandma and I loved her… More than anything… I love you Grandma."

Fans of the brunette beauty made sure to send their condolences, with one follower writing, "I'm so sorry, she seems like such a special person to you, this is such a lovely way to remember her."

Our thoughts go out to Lea and her family.
