"Life is too short," he wrote. "Give your loved ones their flowers while they are alive. #TYTY Love You #missyou #GodGotUs Family over everything."

Master P's son, Romeo Miller, 32, who is one of the rapper's nine children and an actor and rapper who goes by the stage name Romeo, also shared his grief over his sister's death.

"We appreciate all of the prayers, love, and support, and although this is sad times, I'm forever grateful for the memories I did have with my amazing sister," he wrote on Instagram.
