Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Joyce Giraud has had some tough moments in her personal life recently, as the ladies learn on this week's episode that her father passed away. Now, Joyce is thanking fans for reaching out during this tough time. 

"Thank you all for the sweet messages," Joyce tweets on February 17. "It was a tough time last year when my father passed, and I really didn't want to make this a story line."

"Your love and support means the world to me xoxo," she continues. 

Definitely, we can understand why Joyce wouldn't want to attend Yolanda Foster's party, given what a painful time Joyce was dealing with. And we also repsect that she didn't make a big deal about her dad's passing at first, in order to keep things private. 

We hadn't met Joyce's dad on the show, but we've loved getting to see her lovely relationship with husband Michael. And their kids couldn't be cuter!

We've seen other RHoBH stars deal with the pain of losing parents. Indeed, Kyle Richards and Kim Richards have discussed how much they both miss their mom.

We wish Joyce and her family all the best.
