Los Angeles: Actor John Stamos is grieving the death of his mother, Loretta Phillips Stamos, after she passed away at her home at the age of 75.

The 51-year-old actor paid tribute to Loretta on Instagram by sharing a picture of them together when he was baby, reportedly. "The love of my life passed away yesterday in her home surrounded by her children and grandchildren," he captioned the photo.

"My mother had enough love to fuel a small country. She was truly one of a kind and will live forever in the hearts of all who knew her. "A few weeks ago, I asked my mom if she remembered an inconsequential event - she simply replied, 'I only remember the love.' #Brokenhearted #Iloveyouthemost," he added.

The former 'ER' star urged any followers eager to show their support to make donations to The Vanguard Cancer Foundation, the charity founded by his mother and described on its website as a not-for-profit, volunteer organisation advocating for more personalised and intelligent cancer care.

Loretta was inspired to start the charity after her brother was diagnosed with terminal cancer many years ago.
