Drake mourned the death of a young fan named Kay, whom he met through Make-A-Wish Foundation, on Sunday (Nov. 4).

"Gonna miss you a whole lot. We met through make a wish and we built a genuine bond you would text me and check on me while I was on tour and tell me positive things and share your dreams and goals," the Toronto MC somberly wrote on Instagram. 

"I am crying in this pic but it was tears of joy cause we just prayed for you with your father. I am sorry I missed your text on my birthday that’s eating my soul right now but you know how much I loved you and was looking forward to seeing you after tour," he continued. Though Drake didn't disclose Kay's cause of death, he did speak on his desire to speak on her passing since it was "sitting heavy" on his heart. 

"I don’t know why I am writing this on IG I just need to get it out cause it’s sitting heavy on my heart. Will remember you forever K!" he concluded.
