Meghan, 34, then announced she would be off social media for the next several days.

"On this anniversary until his birthday after the 29th I am going to take a break from social media for reflection," she wrote. "The memory of my father's life continues to guide me today, as it always will. Remember to cherish your loved ones and be grateful for every moment you have with them. I still can’t believe my heart didn’t stop when yours did Dad..."

In April, Meghan revealed she hadn't been home to Arizona since her father's death, captioning an Instagram video, “241 days. I made you teach Ben how to grill your dry ribs because I knew at some point you wouldn’t be able to. I miss you every. single. day. I still can’t go back home to Arizona.”
