Usher shared a deep connection with his grandmother and the sudden loss of her left a cataclysmic hole in his life that no one can fill. His grandmother was the predominant pillar of strength in his life and when it suddenly changes, the rhythm of his life would turn into a mundane life where no hues could change the pale color of grief and despair.
Let us have a brief look at the emotional tribute of Usher to his deceased grandmother.
Usher Disheartening Tribute To His Grandmother
It was indeed a piece of soul-crushing news to Usher and to his family when their beloved grandmother passed away at the age of 87. She was right as rain and was happily living with her loved ones when death took an unexpected turn and embraced her.
Usher, the resounding American singer was so deeply loved and cared for by his grandmother and he shared a special bond with her. So when she suddenly left him all alone in the world, he could not comprehend the situation and burst into emotional trauma.
The astounding singer took to his Instagram account to share this devastating news. He shared a series of pictures of him and his grandmother together and wrote
“It’s taken me a few days to come to grips with the fact that my Grandma Tina is no longer with me. I am praying for clarity and strength for all who relied on her. I feel a bit lost right now. Part of me is trying to be strong, for others. The other half of me continues to break silently. We were just laughing days ago. I really thought we had more time”.
No one could be able to control their tears if we have a glance at his Instagram post and the words he poured out. He has not mentioned what really happened to her or the cause of her death. But we could infer that maybe she died due to natural causes of her age.
As he said, some losses are incomprehensible beyond our sense organs or to our souls. There will be moments that will break us to the core, but during the test of time, the deep scars would find a way to heal.
With a deep perforated heart, Usher recalls their last conversation drenched in tears and he tries to put it into words in the caption that he shared.
It reads “Her last words to me were, ‘There is a time for everything son. There is a time to laugh, a time to cry, there is a time to live and a time to die”.
Her words are true to the core and it is the naked bittering fact of human life. Time decides everything and though it is a bitter pill to swallow, if anyone’s time is up then without any delay they would have to definitely leave us. Even though his grandmother’s death really shook him to the core, sooner or later he would have to learn the truth the hard way and live the rest of his life with the scar.
When we have a glance at his early life, Usher had to live with his mother and stepfather when his father left them when he was a year old. So all in life he had only a limited number of people he could rely upon when the world around him collapses. So one among these persons was his grandmother and now he is left with lesser go-to persons and this indigestible fact is what makes him agonized.
