By Michael Walters

Today Teemu Selanne posted a photo of his beloved mother on his Instagram account announcing that she has passed away. Teemu mentioned that she recently had knee surgery and unfortunately complications arose afterward. In the photo below you can see Teemu being held by his mother when he was just a baby. You can read his entire post honoring her memory below.

Our hearts go out to Teemu and the rest of the Selanne family in this difficult time.

Mom❤The Last couple of days have been the toughest days of my life, there is no words to describe this sadness , losing your loved one is so tough, but losing your mom is even tougher, your knee replacement surgery was supposed to give more joy in your life but instead of joy ,the complications the day after suddenly took my lovely mom away from me and us. I have been the luckiest boy and man to Have you as my mom . I have never met such a kind, loving, genuine, unselfish and positive person in my life. Your inspiration and example of how to treat people with such kind love is the biggest Legacy that you can leave for me and all of us. You have always loved angels and your house is full of angels, now you will be one and I know you will be guarding all of us. I am so proud of you and I love you so much and I will miss you every second rest of my life until we meet again. Rest in piece mom. I love u❤
