"You are so loved my Ben Ben," added Riley.

Riley honored Benjamin on Instagram in October for his birthday, writing, "I miss you all day every day my best friend. We spent my 29th birthday just the two of us and it was one of the best days we shared together. I think this photo was the day after but close enough. Happy Birthday wherever you are baby brother."

Last year, Riley told The New York Times about the difficult time she experienced in the months since Benjamin's death. She described it as "a year of feeling like I was thrown into the ocean and couldn't swim."

"The first four or five months, I couldn't get out of bed. I was totally debilitated. I couldn't talk for two weeks," she said.

"It's very complicated for our minds to put that somewhere because it's so outrageous," added Riley. "If I'm going through a breakup, I know what to do with that and where to file it in my mind, but suicide of your brother? Where do you put that? How does that integrate? It just doesn't."
