Shona Ferguson’s daughter, Alicia, has written an emotional tribute to her “twin”. The actor passed away on Friday due to COVID-19-related complications.

Alicia shared a lengthy post on Instagram about her amazing father.

“Words can not express how I’m feeling right now. My worst fear became a reality. You fought your fight dad, and I’m so proud of you for making it this far,” she began.

Ali, as her family calls her, says she will carry on her father’s legacy.

“You’ve not only touched our lives as your family, but you’ve touched many others as well. You’ve left a legacy behind that I will carry on, as I did make this promise when I was little to you. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me my doppelgänger.”

Ali added that she believes that Shona will always be there for her in spirit. She also listed all the things she will miss:

I’m going to miss being your personal photographer
I’m going to miss tickling your feet and you shouting at me for it
I’m going to miss smelling your perfume around the house
I’m going to miss a lot of things, but most importantly, your hugs. You gave the best hugs on this earth Fa, and I cherish each hug you’ve given me
