What a devastating time for Tara Reid.
While the actress didn't go into details about her poppa's death, she did manage to pen a beautiful and emotional tribute in his honor, even going as far to coin Thomas as her "hero".
The American Pie star gushed:
"My dad was so supportive, kind, strong, and my hero. He was my heart, my soul, and my entire world. I love you and will miss you so much daddy! #RIPDADDYREID."
