"Nan there are no words to describe how grateful my heart is for you," the 37-year-old mum wrote, sharing some sweet throwback photos with her grandma.

"You've brought so much light and love into this world through everyone you have met. Everyone who has met you has been uplifted by your presence.

"Thank you Nan for being all a girl could ever wish for in a Nan and so much more. Please know I could never have been who I am without you, your love, your influence and your support. I am who I am because of you and I promise to carry your legacy, your love and your light in this world as long as I shall live."

On February 15, Miranda shared the news she and her family had farewelled her grandfather as well.

"He had defied the odds and lived longer than the doctors had expected," she wrote at the time.


"And even though we all knew that his time on this earth was coming to an end it didn't make his passing any easier. He was our rock, a gentle yet strong man who had tremendous faith and a kind heart. I love you Pa."

Many of Miranda's celebrity friends and fans shared their messages of condolence.

"Such a beautiful heartfelt tribute to your sweet Nan. Sending condolences, love and light to you and your family," model Megan Gale commented.

"May she rest with the highest sweetheart, your beautiful Nan is shining down on you always. Much love to you and your family," fashion designer Alex Perry wrote.

The founder and CEO of Kora Organics and her billionaire husband, SnapChat founder Evan Spiegel, had returned to Australia in January from LA, and were isolating in their $7.5 million property in Rothbury, rural NSW.

According to The Daily Telegraph, both were approved to isolate at their lavish estate instead of quarantining in a hotel. Miranda had however been given an exemption to leave during the 14-day isolation period so she could visit her sick relative (now believed to be her grandfather) in palliative care.
