Southern Charm star Olivia Flowers is grieving the loss of her brother, Conner.
The blonde beauty lost her sibling less than a month ago, and his birthday was just a few days ago.
Olivia shared a touching tribute to her brother on what would have been his 33rd birthday.
While she’s kept mostly quiet since Conner’s passing, she did mention how grateful she and her parents were for the support and messages they’ve received.

With such a monumental loss, Olivia couldn’t let his birthday pass without acknowledging the hole in her heart.
