Kyan Douglas pens moving tribute to late mom
14 August 2012

Kyan Douglas, who came to fame as the grooming expert on the Bravo makeover series Queer Eye, has shared with his Facebook followers that his mother died on Monday (13 August).

Douglas has written a moving tribute to Judith Elaine Douglas who was just 68 at the time of her death and was clearly close to her TV star son:

‘Mom, in the East they say your mother is your first Guru. You were certainly my first Teacher, but you were also my lullaby singer, my tooth fairy and my Mary Poppins. You were my lunch box-packer, my nurse, and a scout-mother for Troop 23. You were a PFLAG mom when I needed you to be, even though I never had to ask. You were my best cheerleader and probably my best friend. You cleaned, you cooked and you baked cookies, cinnamon rolls and birthday cakes.’

‘God only knows how much you sacrificed. You held me when tears rolled down my face- even as recently as last week. And many times that you will never know about, you were my conscience- my True North regarding right and wrong. You are my Heart and I can’t imagine my life without you; I will miss you until I breathe my last breath. I love you endlessly and always. Kyan.’
