Demi Lovato (27, "Sober") mourns the loss of her grandfather Perry. As she writes on Instagram about several pictures of the man, after waking up, she found out that he died in the early morning. "He has been sick for a few years," the singer explains to her over 86 million subscribers. And although she was relieved "that he was now released from his pain", she was saddened by the thought that the family could not say goodbye to him "with an adequate funeral". "But that's the reality during this pandemic."
The pictures that Lovato published by her grandfather, "one of the best preachers", show him in different stages of life. The singer can also be recognized on one of the snapshots, apparently at an event to which her grandfather accompanied her. "I'm sorry that we didn't take more photos together," the 27-year-old writes. Instead of many pictures, she has "so many memories that make me smile until we meet again someday".
