my grandmother used to visit me when I needed a hug. And the hugs stopped after my granddaughter was born.— Whiskbroom 🐓 🍷 (@RuthAMoore) August 28, 2019
A psychic told me a few years ago that my granddaughter was my grandmother.
I am sure your mom is simply trying to help you carry on.
Moms do that. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Frequently. Especially when I’m going through a really rough trot.— PerfectlyFlawedPJ (@Syksie2) August 28, 2019
"Not in my dreams, but I hear them in my heart," someone else said.
Perrette's mother died in 2002 following a battle with breast cancer, and Perrette frequently memorializes her. Along with co-owning a bakery in New York City named Donna Bell's Bake Shop, Perrette often pays homage to Bell on social media, continuing to mark Mother's Day each year. This year, she shared an emotional message to mark the occasion for both herself and others who have lost a mother.
"Happy Mother's Day to all moms out there!" she wrote. "And for all who are missing their moms today, I'm with you."
Perrette, who departed NCIS after 15 seasons and more than 350 episodes as Abby Sciuto, can be seen next on the CBS comedy Broke, where she stars opposite Jane the Virgin alum Jaime Camil as Jackie, a suburban single mother train got give her son a better life.
Broke is expected to premiere in 2020.
