Lin-Manuel Miranda’s grandmother passed away on Christmas Day (Dec. 25), according to the Grammy award-winning playwright. Miranda took to Twitter to pay tribute to his late grandmother, Abuela Mundi.
“My heart is in pieces and that’s where it’s gonna be for a bit,” Miranda posted, along with black and white portraits of Mundi.
Miranda had a close relationship with his grandmother, who even inspired the character Abuela Claudia in his musical In The Heights.
