"My Dad was a lover of many things. Animals, plants, chocolate, jazz, anything citrus, lottery tickets, cars, watches, stray dogs & cats and good Italian pasta. But what he loved most was his family," she shared in the caption.

Thiessen's loving tribute gave insight that despite being "heartbroken," she feels a bit of solace knowing that her dad is "at peace now," which brings her "comfort." She also promised to "watch over" her mother and care for her as her father did for "over 60 years."

But most of all, thank you for loving me like you always did. No matter what, you had my back and were my biggest fan. I loved making you proud," she added.
