KHLOE Kardashian made a heartbreaking promise to Tristan Thompson’s younger brother Amari.
Following the death of Tristan and Amari’s mother Andrea on January 5, Khloé took Instagram to share a heart-wrenching post.
Sharing several photos of herself with Andrea and also Amari, Khloé began the caption: “I’ve been avoiding it…. Avoiding accepting it is real. I have so much to say but nothing at all….
“I have so many emotions and I still feel numb. Life can be brutally unfair at times and this was one of the most difficult times in so many of our lives.
“But at the same time, I feel blessed to be lucky to have someone who makes saying goodbye so incredibly difficult.
“So hard that I choose not to say goodbye for good because that’s something I can’t understand. Goodbye for good is something I don’t believe in.”
Mum-of-two Khloé continued: ‘I KNOW I’ll see you again. I know I will hear your sweet voice and infectious laugh again. I know I will feel that hug of yours.
“I will see you again with the many that have gone before you that I miss so desperately, I love and love. So I choose to say, that until I see you again in Heaven, I miss you and will continue to miss you more and more every day ».
Khloé added, “I know you’re with our Lord and Savior. I know you’re up there rejoicing. You’re dancing and singing and probably yelling ‘who’s doing this!!'” Because we’re crying for your loss.
“At the same time, I know you never wanted to leave your boys. They are your whole world. They will learn to live with the hole in their heart because they are warriors just like their warrior mom.

Khloé’s friends and followers were quick to comment on the post, with friend Tracy Romulus writing: “Your strength, heart and soul are unmatched. You are the most amazing woman.”
Hef BFF Malika simply commented, “Amen,” and Allison Statter said, “I love you and the beautiful family so much Khlo! You are a true angel.”
One fan wrote: “So sorry for your loss. I just know Khloe will make sure Amari gets the best care. She is an incredible woman with a heart of gold.”
And another added: “One thing we all know is you’ll be the one taking care of everyone fr.”
Basketball player Tristan has three brothers: Dishawn, Daniel and Amari.
Amari — his younger sibling — suffers from epilepsy, a brain disorder that causes repeated, unprovoked seizures and sometimes loss of awareness, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Tristan established The Amari Thompson fund in 2013 in honor of his brother.
It was held to benefit Epilepsy Toronto to raise awareness, education and funding for the disorder.
“Everybody has their motivations,” Tristan said in March 2022 after a Bulls shootout, according to NBC.
“For me, he’s my brother and my family. My mom also had to sacrifice every day. She had to watch a child for basically 24 hour care. This takes her away from her life and freedom.
“Most parents who have kids in the NBA, their parents can go to Vegas or Atlantic City and go to islands. For her, it’s not always the same. I use it as a driving force to make life easier for both of us.”
