Demi Lovato is in mourning today.
The singer, who posted a number of fun selfies earlier in the week, took to Instagram for a very different reason this afternoon: the memory of her father.
Patrick Lovato died of cancer on June 20, 2013.
"Can’t believe it’s already been a year.. Wish I could’ve hugged you one last time.. RIP Daddy, I love you," Lovato wrote as a caption to the following image.
Soon after this tragic event, Lovato started a mental illness scholarship fund in her dad's honor.
She's pretty awesome that way. We send our prayers and thoughts her way on this difficult occasion.
