Tori Spelling made peace with her father, TV titan Aaron Spelling, before his death Friday from complications from a stroke.

“I’m grateful I recently had the opportunity to reconcile with my father and most grateful we had the chance to tell each other we loved one another before he passed away,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“It’s a true blessing to have had a parent that loved me unconditionally. He had a heart as big as his talent and today, along with many others, I mourn his loss. He was a great man and even better father.”

Aaron Spelling passed away at his home near Beverly Hills. He was 83.
