“Friends and Family stepped in and made this happen in a way that I didn’t know I could rely on,” she shared. “I am thankful. I’m also VERY thankful to all of u. Your kind words, prayers and energy you been sending my way.”

McCoy also reflected on her family’s appearance on season 7 episode 5 of OWN’s  Iyanla, Fix My Life. The episode followed three generations of McCoy’s family trying to work together under one roof and break generational curses.

“When some saw us on Iyanla Fix My Life it was 4 generations under 1 roof cry out for help… Alot a pain and trauma unwrapped in the middle… and before the end we found understanding,compassion and our way back to the love,” she explained.

The All Of Us star made sure to send her mother off in true Chicago style with a performance of the Chicago Cha Cha Slide and help from Bishop Don Juan. She sent a sweet message to her late mother and promised to continue making her proud.

“Ma rest with no more suffering. You did a great job with me,” McCoy wrote.

“I got the torch from here. Stay with me in spirit as I been recently feeling. I’m still going to make you prouder.”

We’re glad LisaRaye is at peace and her mom is at peace.
