Demi Lovato's Great-Grandfather Passes Away: See Her Touching Tribute
Demi Lovato's great-grandfather (who she calls Papa), who has been ailing all summer, died this week at age 88. Lovato announced his passing on Instagram yesterday (Sept. 28) via a photo of both her great-grandfather and her dog Buddy, who died earlier this summer in a coyote attack.
“My two favorite Buddy’s are now playing in Heaven,” she said in the caption. “My heart is absolutely broken and I can’t even begin to imagine a world without my Papa but I know one day we’ll meet again and that’s what keeps me going."
My two favorite Buddy's are now playing in Heaven. My heart is absolutely broken and I can't even begin to imagine a world without my Papa but I know one day we'll meet again and that's what keeps me going. I hate writing this... But RIP Papa... I miss you so much already. I love you. Please keep my Mimaw in your prayers
He is survived by her great-grandmother "Mimaw," who is 93.
