On what would have been her brother Conner’s 33rd birthday, Southern Charm star Olivia Flowers is remembering him.
Flowers posted a picture of her brother on Instagram on Thursday, just 10 days after Conner died. In the picture, he is pointing into the distance with his mother, sister, and father standing next to him.
“I’ve been avoiding the post and anything else that makes losing you our new normal…
but I want to wish Conner a Happy Birthday in Heaven “Flowers was how the caption started.
“Your parents and I all love you. We miss you down here on earth,” She went on by adding a hashtag with the number 33, which was Conner’s age at the time of his death.

Then she thanked “those who have reached out and been so helpful during this time.”
“To be surrounded by people who knew and loved Conner all week was a gift in itself,” Flowers wrote. She ended her caption by saying that her family is “so grateful” for everyone’s messages and that they “haven’t gone unseen.”
Flowers also put a picture of herself on her Instagram Story wearing what looks like her brother’s jersey. In the picture, Flowers has her back to the camera and is looking out over the water towards the setting sun.
Several of Flowers’ co-stars on Southern Charm wrote on the post that they were sorry for her and her family.
“Beautifully said. Austin Kroll, Flowers’ ex-boyfriend, wrote, “We’re all here for you,” and Taylor Ann Green replied, “Celebrating with Jesus today.”
Naomie Olindo, Leva Bonaparte, and Venita Aspen wrote “Love you” in the comments, and Kathryn Dennis, who used to work with Flowers, said, “Love you both!!!! Lovely day for it!”
Maddi Reese and Joe Bradley, from the Southern Hospitality spinoff of the Bravo show, also paid their respects. They wrote on the post with three heart emojis.
Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix also commented on the post, saying, “Sending you and your family all the love and hugs.”
Page Six said that Charleston County Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal said in a statement that Conner died on January 30 at his home on the Isle of Palms, which is outside of Charleston, South Carolina.
O’Neal also said that police are still “investigating” to find out how and why the person died.
In a statement to PEOPLE at the time, Conner’s family talked about how kind he was and how much he cared about his faith.
“Conner was an amazing young man with a gift for caring about and loving other people. He made friends everywhere he went because of this,” his family said. “His faith and family taught him what was important in life.”
“We know that many people will miss him for many years,” the statement said. “Please don’t bother us while we’re grieving the loss of our son and brother, which is very hard for us.“
