Filmmaker Tyler Perry promised last year to construct a five-bedroom home with a swimming pool for Josephine Wright, a 93-year-old senior from South Carolina, after developers forced her to sell her property.

When Tyler contacted the family to find out what Josephine want in a new house, she replied that she would like a pool and five bedrooms. Tyler accepted, and his group forwarded the designs to Josephine.

Following Ms. Wright’s passing, Tyler Perry now posts a genuine message of sympathy. The businesswoman pledges to leave the mansion to her 40 grandchildren and her four children. Perry stated in an Instagram post:

The news of this warrior’s passing breaks my heart. Even though we only spoke over the phone, Ms. Josephine Wright, I was really excited to meet you in person and give you the keys to your new home next month, but God had other ideas.

I hope you find comfort in the knowledge that I will stick to the promise I made to you.

As I give those identical keys to your family, I know you are keeping an eye on us all.

Therefore, you will still be able to tell the world what kind of fighter you were when you get together at YOUR house on YOUR land with your four children, forty grandchildren, fifty great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren. You’ve completed your race and put up a fantastic fight! Travel safely, my dear. I’m inspired by you.

Godspeed, Ms. Wright!
