Benjamin was just 27 when he died by suicide last year.

“A year ago this morning was the last time I got to see you,” Riley wrote on top of her photo with Benjamin that she posted. “I didn’t hug you properly because I thought you had COVID.”

She added, “I wish I’d hugged you properly. I miss you every day.”

Following Benjamin‘s death, Riley went through training to become a death doula and addressed her own grief in the process.

“We are taught that it’s a morbid subject to talk about, or we’re so afraid of it that we’re unable to talk about it…then of course it happens to us, and we are very ill-prepared. I think it’s so important to be educated on conscious dying and death the way we educate ourselves on birth and conscious birthing,” she had told her fans after completing training.
