The singer lost her 93-year-old great-grandma, “Mimaw,” over the weekend, and the tribute she wrote for her on social media is absolutely heartbreaking.
“This morning I lost my world and the world’s most special woman,” Lovato wrote on Instagram, next to a photo. “I miss her more than words can even describe. There is an emptiness in my heart that only her spirit can fill and I pray that I will feel her by my side every single day until we meet again.”
Mimaw’s death come less than a year after Lovato revealed to fans that her 88-year-old great-grandfather had died.
“I attribute my strength to her,” Lovato continued on Instagram. “She held on when she lost the love of her life… The one she was married to for 53 years. She smiled even though she lost a son just this year. She told everyone she loved them every single chance she got and she joked even when her strokes left her unable to speak properly. The smile that she had not only could light up a whole room but it most definitely lit up the entire nursing home. She was my great-grandmother but we were so close that I never knew it was possible that anyone could have the bond that we shared even 70 years a part. The pain I feel is almost unbearable but because of her strength I will power through it.”
Lovato’s great-grandmother had been sick for several months, and Lovato had asked her fans on social media to direct their prayers to Mimaw. In her post, she thanked them for their support throughout Mimaw’s illness.
“The love and support I have received has been empowering and so special to me,” she wrote. “I love all of you so much and I am forever grateful for the prayers, texts and fan art my Lovatics have made me. Thank you.”
She also directed part of her post directly at Mimaw, writing, “Mimaw, I hope you are with Papa now… I hate that I can’t hear your voice but I love that you are no longer in pain. I love you so much and I miss you more than anyone could ever imagine. I’ll miss your smile, your wittiness, painting your nails and your kisses. I really do love you more. Rest in peace and most importantly rest in the Lord.”
After posting to Instagram, Lovato also headed to Twitter to remind her fans to cherish life and their relationships.
Life is so short. Cherish every moment you have with your family and friends…
