She mourned her dad and explained her family relationship with her father in a post, Gray wrote, “My dad died last week. We didn’t have a close relationship, which isn’t uncommon. And I thought I had long ago made peace with the fact that my dad just wasn’t cut out for this parenting gig. “
“But it turns out our younger selves are always with us. They can’t be put to rest (annoying). That little kid who hoped and waited for her ‘real’ dad to show up was still in there. His death snuffed out that hope, which I think is the hardest thing. For me, and for my sister Ellie. It’s ironic my dad died during lockdown. He couldn’t let us in in life, and he managed to avoid it in death too. But El and I will find a way to honour him after all this is over. And I think he’d be secretly stoked,” she added.
