The world is still grieving over the loss of Tom Petty, who died on Oct. 2 after succumbing to cardiac arrest. But as much as fans and followers adored the legendary musician, none of us can imagine what those nearest and dearest to the man must be going through right now,, including his beloved daughter Annakim Violette.
But in the midst of her mourning, Annakim is sharing one of the most touching tributes to her father that we’ve ever seen. As heartbreaking as her latest Instagram photos are, they are also incredibly moving, and go above and beyond in remembering Tom Petty not just for the impact he had on the music world, but also the impact he had on her as a parent. They are proof that he was truly a star among stars in both respects.
Annakim began by sharing a photo of her dad’s guitar, on display at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
And then she got more personal, sharing lovely throwback photos of her devoted father.
She also shared classic Tom Petty moments, coupled with personal and beautiful captions like, “I love you my angel.”
The song lyrics she shared from her beyond talented father became even more poignant in a time like this.
And the more throwback photos she shared, the better idea we got as to how strong and deep their father and daughter bond truly was.
Wow. Though Tom Petty was a beloved musician by many, it’s clear that this was a personal and heartbreakingly beautiful tribute that only a daughter could make.
We continue to keep Annakim Violette and the rest of Tom Petty’s beloved family members and friends in our thoughts during this tough time.
