Taylor Swift Pens Heartfelt Letter to Fan Grieving Her Mother’s DeathPublished on May 11, 2015.
Mother’s Day can be hard for people who have lost their mothers — but Taylor Swift is here to help.
The 25 year-old pop star wrote a heartfelt letter to a fan this weekend, offering her some support during the difficult holiday.
The fan, known only by her first name, Kaileen, posted a message to Taylor on her Tumblr page.
“Today is Mother’s Day, a day most people spend with their mothers thanking them for everything they do. But, for me, I can’t spend this day with my mom because she’s in heaven,” she wrote.
Kaileen continued: “Last January, my mom passed away and a piece of my heart left with her. My mom was my best friend, the one I laughed with, the one I cried with, and the one I loved with my whole heart. For a while, I felt empty. But as you’ve done many times before, you filled that hole. You took me out of my sad place and made me happy. And because of you, I got through something that was the hardest thing in the world for me.”
Taylor, who recently shared the news that her own mother has been diagnosed with cancer, wrote back, “I love you so much and can’t imagine what you must be feeling today. You’ve lived through my worst fear. I’m so sorry you can’t spend today with her. It’s not fair, and there’s no reason why you should feel okay about it. No one should ever expect you to feel normal today.”
Taylor went on to say that she admires and respects Kaileen’s positive attitude. We love the love!
