She posted the following caption along with the photos:

“Although Shelby and I were unable to be there physically on the 28th of January, we were still able to share this heartbreakingly beautiful day with Alexi’s closest.

“I’d like to thank my family @annalaiho and @roopekaukinen for trusting me in all arrangements.

“My perfect love,
your memory is sown in our hearts where it will stay forever, cherished and honored.”

Shortly after Alexi’s death, Wright-Laiho shared the following brief message:

“Thank you all so much for your beautiful energy and support. I’m taking time out to grieve our enormous loss with our immediate Finnish and Australian family. Understandably, as you are, we’re completely broken but wanted you to know, We love and appreciate you all so much.”

Laiho’s death was announced on January 4 of this year, although his family revealed he had died the previous week. He had suffered from long-term health issues and was only 41 years old.
