"This is one post I wish I didn't have to make," Thompson wrote on Instagram. "Last night we all surrounded Anna with love & let her know it was okay to go. Unfortunately around 11pm Anna took her last breathe. Anna was in so much pain last night but now as a family we all know she is at peace now."

"The sky looks a little bit different today," she added. "We will always love you Anna."
