“My heart aches for my mom MJ and my niece Natalie and I pray that God guides us all through this difficult time,” the 68-year-old continued. “Karen was beautiful inside and out.

“She was the sweetest, kindest, the most sensitive and vulnerable and so so funny. She always felt grateful and thankful for her life and treasured her family and friends and especially her beautiful daughter. She holds such a huge part of my heart and I cherish every single memory we have together.”

She concluded by reminding her followers that since “life is so short and precious and tomorrow is never promised … we must tell those we cherish how much we love them.”

The 26-year-old called Houghton her “best friend” and her “everything,” gushing, “I’m so grateful to have had a mother like you.”

Jenner, who reportedly had a rocky relationship with Houghton, was all smiles attending Kylie Jenner’s Sprinter vodka soda launch on Thursday in her first appearance since the tragedy.
