Just one day after Father’s Day, Kandi Burruss and her family marked a rather somber anniversary. According to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s Twitter, June 17, 2013 marked the twenty-second anniversary of her brother’s death, and even though a lot of time has passed, that day is still a very difficult one for Kandi.

On June 17 she tweeted, “Today is the anniversary of my brother's death. That was one of the worst days of my life... #r.i.p. Patrick” and included a picture of her brother’s grave, which was decorated with fresh flowers.

Even though the day was unbearably difficult for her, Kandi was also sure to spend time with Mama Joyce, who may have been having a rough time as well. “Happy Monday! I'm about to go spend time with my mom,” she wrote earlier in the day.

Kandi has mentioned her brother’s death in the past, but we know it’s always been something that she has difficulty speaking about. Wherever he is now, we  know Patrick must be immensely proud of Kandi, her mom, and Riley!
