“My dad wasn’t just my dad, he was my best friend,” she began her Instagram tribute on June 19, along with a throwback photo of the daddy-daughter duo. “He wore his heart. He didn’t hide it; he wasn’t afraid of love. My dad simply wanted to share laughter and love with this world.
Lara said she acknowledged how it can be “scary to love that big” and to be “open so fully” but admitted it’s often “easier to be angry, fearful, negative.
