Former NBA star Lamar Odom has taken to Instagram to pen an emotional post as he mourns the loss of his father Joe Odom.
Lamar, 41, thanked his loved ones and fans for their support after his father, died last month.
“I appreciate every single one of you for sending me good energy,” Odom wrote in an Instagram post-Monday 3rd April.“Life is not promised. My pops and I had our differences but at the end of the day I knew he loved me and I loved him and that’s really all that matters.”
Odom also spoke about the importance of making amends with loved ones.
“I encourage you to take some time and make amends with family and friends, tell someone you love them, smile a little more, laugh out loud, give your heart to those that deserve it because NOTHING is promised but death. That’s it,” the star wrote.

It appears that Lamar and his father had patched up their strained relationship before Joe’s passing. The two were at odds several years back when Odom’s then-wife, Khloé Kardashian, allegedly refused to keep paying Joe’s rent following Lamar’s near-fatal overdose at a brothel in 2015.
“I just wish I could be at his side in LA to support him, but Khloé doesn’t want me there,” said Joe, who said he had to leave his Los Angeles home for Brooklyn.
Joe, who was a war veteran, said at the time that he couldn’t work because he suffered from PTSD and pneumonia.
Odom’s mother died of cancer when he was 12 years old. The athlete was raised by his grandmother, as his father reportedly struggled with an addiction to heroin.
