“Thank you to all the fans who honored our Scarlett yesterday,” Mandy captioned the images. “Dec. 17th will never be the same, but we decide to celebrate her by writing her letters on red balloons and releasing them.” But while the day will always have sad memories, THIS year, Selena and her mom had something happy to celebrate too, as 13 Reasons Why, wrapped filming of season 2.

So, she was there in spirit as always,” Mandy explained. “A moms love for their children is pretty fierce. In order of my girls, Selena, Scarlett and Gracie. “
The proud mother added that her 13 Reasons Why fam is also near-and-dear to her heart, as well as her fans — and they always will be. “Family is what matters, blood or not, #family13 made me smile and feel loved when so needed and they didn’t know,” Mandy wrote. “Then, I came home to Brian and Gracie to send our love to Scarlett. Fans, I want you to know you are family because I have a huge family and you are the only ones who remember! XO forever.”
Back in Nov. 2011, Selena announced the happy news of her mother’s pregnancy via Twitter, writing, “Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news…My mommy’s carrying my baby brother or sister :) I’m the happiest girl in the world!” Just a month later however, the singer revealed on Facebook that her mom had miscarried while thanking her devoted fans for their support.
“Belated Merry Christmas everybody.. I can’t thank you enough for all of your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate every one of you.. I love you all so much and we hope you and your family had a beautiful Christmas! Love, Me, Momma, Brian and our guardian angel Scarlett. God bless,” Selena wrote.
