On Sunday, November 4th, Drake posted an emotional goodbye on Instagram to a friend whom he met through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Although he didn’t provide much context about their relationship, losing this friend, a woman known as “Kay,” has clearly made a major impact on the rapper.
He continued, “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. 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!”
Fans and followers shared prayers, condolences, and comforting messages with Drake in the comments of his post.
“She will definitely still be checking on you,” one Instagram user, @msjennajacobs, wrote.
Kay is one of two Make-A-Wish fans Drake was keeping in touch with. In August, the “In My Feelings” singer met with Sofia Sanchez, a patient at Lurie’s Children’s Hospital of Chicago. He met up with her the same day Sofia learned she would receive a new heart.
We’re sending our condolences to Drake and to Kay’s loved ones during this difficult time.
