It's been a tough few weeks for Vanessa Hudgens, whose dad passed away on Jan. 30 after a long battle with cancer.

But the star has been keeping her memories of him alive in a series of emotional messages on social media, including a touching photo she shared after her father's memorial service yesterday. Hudgens took to Instagram to post a picture of him in uniform, which she simply captioned: "Rest in peace daddy."

Several days prior, she 'grammed the words "I wish heaven had visiting hours," and wrote "If only..." alongside the snap.

Hudgens broke the news about her father's passing on Twitter prior to her Grease: Live performance on Jan. 31, writing, "I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers."

Our thoughts are with Vanessa and her family during this difficult time.
