Miley Cyrus Mourns Death of Her Beloved Grandma 'Mammie'

Miley Cyrus has revealed that her beloved grandmother Loretta Finley, who she affectionately called “Mammie,” has passed away.

The 27-year-old singer took to Instagram to share a slideshow of photos and videos of her grandma, along with a touching message. Loretta was the mother of Miley‘s mom Tish Cyrus.

“Even though you are gone…. NOTHING has or ever will change. You will FOREVER be my inspiration and fashion icon. Even more than that the ultimate model of being a true LIGHT in a dark world. You are sunshine,” Miley wrote.

She continued, “Everyday I wake and see that fiery ball in the sky I will see your face. Then say a prayer thanking heaven above for giving me the best grandmother a girl could ever be gifted. I will miss you for the rest of my life…. I will keep your spirit here by continuing to do good for others and treating them the way we all desire to be treated. With an infinite amount of the same gentle kindness you displayed daily. We will ache everyday you are not with us.”

Miley is currently scheduled to make an appearance next weekend.
