Virtual hugs and prayers are going out to Kandi Burruss-Tucker and her husband, Todd Tucker, whose mother died yesterday. Sharon Tucker, better known to us as the feisty “Miss Sharon” on the popular Bravo series “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” died Tuesday after a massive stroke.  Todd posted a photo of him and her with the following caption on his Instagram Fan Page:

“Today I lost my partner, my ride or die my best friend! I don’t know what to do? I’m lost! My heart hurts so much! She was a fighter, a warrior for her son! It was me and her against the world! She’s in a better place!! Mom I love you to death! Rest in peace!”

Burruss also posted a message on her social media pages saying that she is “still in shock” over the loss of her mother-in-law.

“Today has been a tough day. Our family has suffered a terrible loss. Sharon was the best mother in-law! She was fun, energetic, loving, & caring. I loved how she liked to get up & go all the time. She would get you in check one minute & give you a hug the next minute. She still had a young spirit. It’s unbelievable that she’s gone. I’m so sad for @todd167 because they were so close… He talked to her every morning & all thru out the day, every day. It’s hard losing people that you love but when it’s out of the blue with no warning it just makes it that much harder…. I’m still in shock.”
