Rumer Willis deals with the grief of his father, Bruce Willis, who was diagnosed with dementia.
The 35-year-old daughter of the “Die Hard” actor and Demi Moore shared a childhood photo on Instagram on Monday in which a shirtless Bruce holds her and smiles proudly.
“I really miss my dad today,” she captioned the throwback.
The Post has contacted representatives for Rumer and Bruce for comment.
Fans showered Rumer with love in the comments, with one writing: “He’s still here, just differently ❤️❤️ sending you love.”
“Hugs. It’s strange and hard to miss someone who is still there. Dementia is a cruel beast,” sympathized another.
A third said: “Anticipatory grief is so hard to deal with sometimes. I’m sorry.”
Last week, another of Bruce and Demi’s daughters, Tallulah, also shared photos of herself with her father, writing that the snaps were “coming tonight.”
“You are my whole heart and I am so proud to be your Tallulah Belle Bruce Willis,” she captioned a carousel of photos.
Bruce’s family announced his diagnosis of “cruel” frontotemporal dementia in February.
Since then, the family has spoken repeatedly about Bruce’s condition, as has his friend, “Moonlighting” creator Glenn Gordon Caron, who revealed this month that while Bruce “isn’t totally verbal,” he’s thrilled that the ’80s TV series he starred in opposite Cybill Shepherd is now streaming on Hulu.
“The process (to stream ‘Moonlighting’ on Hulu) took a while and Bruce’s illness is a progressive illness, so I was able to communicate with him, before the illness made him as incommunicable as he was. is now, to hopefully get the show in front of people,” Caron, 69, told the Post. “I know it means a lot to him.”
Meanwhile, Bruce’s wife Emma Hemming, 45, revealed last week she felt “guilty” about accessing “resources” amid the ‘Pulp Fiction’ star’s battle .
“When I can go out for a hike to clear my head, it’s not lost on me that not all care partners can do it,” Heming Willis wrote in an article for Maria Shriver’s Sunday Paper. “When what I share about our family’s journey gets press attention, I know there are thousands of untold and untold stories, each of which deserves compassion and concern.”
She added: “I want people to know that when I hear about another family affected by FTD, I hear the same story of heartbreak, loss and immense sadness from our family resonate in theirs . »
