The singer and wife of rapper T.I. let fans know about her tragic loss via Facebook today. Along with sharing fun memories, Tiny wished the man who encouraged her to join the music industry a tear-jerking goodbye.

“Attention Everybody: See today I lost my father and right now I’m heart broken and I’m sad. I’m crying because my father was my everything. I was his everything, he was mines.

“He did everything he can for me; he never let me down,” she added. “I realize 2013 everybody is losing their love one and it’s going to be really hard for me to get over this but, life has to go on. Even though we are not ready for our loved ones to go, God is and I believe in destiny and I know my dad died with love for me in his heard and no one can every take his place.”

Tiny ended her message by naming all the things she will miss about her father most.

“Daddy why did you have to leave me so soon? I can’t bear to see you in a coffin. I’m gonna scream and cry when they lay you down. I don’t want them to,” she said. “I’m gonna miss talkin to you, hearin your voice, your laugh seein your face, huggin you, touching you, cooking for you. Please come back to use we need you.”

Charles was a member of the R&B group The Tams and a big influence on Tiny’s music career. Their relationship was documented on the 2009 BET realty series “Tiny & Toya.”
