Katharine McPhee is still mourning over her father Daniel McPhee's death! Less than a month of the American Idol alum's engagement to longtime boyfriend David Foster, her dad died on July 15, and the songstress has now shared an Instagram post in the remembrance of her late father.

The post features the 34-year-old Broadway star showing off her stunning engagement ring, and in reflection to her dad's passing, she wrote in the caption,

It's been a hard week. Lots of tears but I want to thank my friends and family for all the love and support. My dad was so happy for me.

In the appreciative note, Katharine further explained the special connection it has to her dad, writing,

My ring was the last thing I showed my dad before he passed and makes me smile when I look at this as a reminder of our last conversation. And now I'm ready to share with all of you what has been my sunshine amongst this painful loss.

She concluded the emotional note,

My love wisely said to me the other day that 'death is the only thing that is 100 percent inevitable and the thing we are least prepared for.' So today we're celebrating life and not forgetting love.

Here's the Instagram post, check it out.

As previously reported, the death of Daniel, who produced CBS' hit series Simon & Simon which aired for eight years (1981-1989), was confirmed by a sad Instagram post shared by his daughter last week.

Days before her father's death, Katharine had canceled her Waitress performances in order to spend a quality time with her dad, however, at the time, she didn't explain what actually happened.
