Taylor Swift comforted a fan, who lost her mom, this Mother’s Day. A fan by the name of Kaileen reached out to the singer on Tumblr and wrote, “It’s me, iced coffee girl, and I could really use a hug.” She went on to explain, “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.”

Kaileen went on to tell Swift, “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.” She further thanked the singer: “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. Today’s going to be another hard day, but I know with you on my side I can get through anything.”

Swift, who stays remarkably close to her fans, replied to Kaileen on Tumblr. “I love you so much and can’t imagine what you must be feeling today.” “You’ve lived through my worst fear,” added Swift who’s own mother, Andrea Finlay, is battling cancer. The superstar went on, “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. I admire and respect your ability to put forth such a sunny, sweet disposition when you’ve been through something so dark and tragic so recently.” Swift concluded, “Sending you a huge hug today. Gonna go get iced coffee and cheers to you. :)”
