Abigail Breslin Writes About Her First Christmas Without Her Dad, Who Died from COVID-19

Abigail Breslin is opening up about her first Christmas without her father, who passed away earlier this year after a battle with COVID-19.

The 25-year-old Stillwater actress’ dad Michael died back in February 2021 after being hospitalized for weeks.

“Merry Christmas eve everyone! I’m not gonna lie. This one is a weird one for me. My first holiday season sans my dada,” Abigail began her note on Instagram.

She continued, “I love the holiday season and am so thankful I get to spend it with my mom, my brothers, my friends and my boyfriend… I’m truly blessed. But it’s hard to know I can’t call my daddy and wish him a merry Christmas or send him a gift certificate to a good steakhouse (101).”

“Some days are harder than others… grief is a tricky little monster. I wish there was an expiration date to missing someone… but I had almost 25 great years of having an awesome dad and I feel as though I know what he’d be saying right now. I think it’s be somewhere along the lines of ‘why ya crying kid? I’m fiiiiiiine. Don’t worry about me! Love you, pretty.’ To anyone who’s missing someone this holiday season… I see you, I hear you and you’re not alone,” Abigail wrote. “Nonetheless, I’m going to heavily cherish those who are here and hug them harder than ever. Merry christmas to all… and to all, a good night.”
