Savannah Chrisley posted a heartfelt tribute to her ex-fiancé, Nic Kerdiles, after his sudden death in a motorcycle accident Saturday morning.
The reality star took to her Instagram Story and posted a sweet Boomerang of her and Kerdiles sharing a kiss.
She overlayed it with the words: “I’m still hoping you respond to my text.”
Chrisley then shared another photo of the two of them holding hands on a beach, while the song “Dancing in the Sky” by Dani and Lizzy played.
“Heaven gained the most beautiful angel today,” she wrote. “I miss you and I love you…I’ll forever save our messages of ‘I love you’….”
Savannah went on to add that she’s hoping Kerdiles “sends me a sign that you’re ok….maybe it’ll be thru a ham and cheese crepe or pasta with white sauce…or maybe your favorite carrot cake.”
She ended the emotional missive by noting that the two of them “loved hard” and she’s looking forward to riding bikes “along the beaches of heaven with you one day.”
The Nashville Police Department told TMZ that Kerdiles passed away from injuries he received from the car accident around 3:30 a.m.
The 29-year-old reportedly sped through a stop sign in a residential Nashville area and hit the driver’s side of a BMW.
He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he later passed away.
Authorities shared that there were no signs of impairment in either driver.
The former pro hockey player posted a photo of himself atop his Indian motorcycle hours before the fatal crash.
“Night rider,” he captioned the Instagram Story.
Kerdiles’ first pro hockey team, the Anaheim Ducks, paid tribute after the news broke.
“We’re heartbroken to hear the news about Nic Kerdiles, who died in a motorcycle accident this morning,” a post on their Instagram read. “An Irvine native, Nic became the first player from Orange County to play for the Ducks, in 2017. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones.”
He was later traded to the Winnipeg Jets in 2018.
Amid his professional athletic career, Kerdiles began dating the “Chrisley Knows Best” star and the two got engaged in December 2018.
Despite the split, Kerdiles had nothing but sweet things to say about his ex.
“This woman right here has been the BIGGEST blessing in my life,” he wrote in 2020 alongside a slideshow of photos of him and Chrisley. “She has the purest heart out of anyone that I know. She has treated me with nothing but love and respect in our 3 years together … There was so much genuine love in this relationship and I’m truly blessed to have been able to spend three years of my life with Savannah.”
Kerdiles battled with mental health issues in 2022, when he attempted suicide while on a combination of pills for COVID-19 and other health issues.
