Beyoncé is mourning the death of Kim Porter.

As the mother of four was laid to rest in her Georgia hometown on Saturday, the Grammy-winning singer honored Porter in a series of touching throwback photos.

In one image, which appeared to be taken from a yearbook, Porter had a red ribbon in her hair. Alongside the photo, Beyoncé seemed to reference “Heaven,” her own heartbreaking song about loss, writing, “Heaven couldn’t wait for you.”

Quincy Brown, Porter’s 27-year-old son from her relationship with Al B. Sure! — whom Porter raised with Sean “Diddy” Combs  — commented on the image with a red heart emoji.

Beyoncé went on to post another picture from Porter’s childhood, as well as an image of Porter posing alongside her and Combs’ twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James, now 11. Both of the images were shared without a caption.


Porter visited with Beyoncé in September, during her On the Run II tour with husband JAY-Z.

The late actress and model posted a photo of the twins and Combs’ daughter Chance — whom he shares with ex Sarah Chapman — posing with the singer backstage.

Porter’s family and friends, including ex-boyfriend and father of her children Combs, bid farewell to her in an elaborate funeral held in Columbus, Georgia, on Saturday, just a little more than a week after her death.

Combs, 49, was spotted arriving at the funeral, as were guests Kimora Lee Simmons and actress Tichina Arnold.

Combs arranged for Porter’s casket to travel in a carriage pulled by horses during the public funeral, which was held at Columbus’ Cascade Hills Church. Acclaimed pastor T.D. Jakes officiated the service.

There was a public viewing held at the Charles E. Huff International Funeral Home before the funeral commenced on Saturday, as well as a viewing on Friday.
