Listen to Kanye West on iHeartRadio

Even with all of the excitement surrounding his upcoming wedding and his wife’s bridal shower this weekend, Kanye West can’t help but realize how bittersweet it all is.

He is perhaps having the best year of his personal life but he is always reminded that someone very important is missing… his mother. Kim’s fiance Kanye West paid a touching tribute to his mother Donda West, who died following plastic surgery complications in 2007.

The rapper took to Twitter to post the following:

What a sweet way to acknowledge his feelings which so many others share. The loss of a parent is a very sad and unfortunate part of life.
At the time of her passing, ‘Ye said that the death was “like losing an arm and a leg and trying to walk through that.” But Kanye also made sure to focus on the positives in his life. Next up, his lavish wedding in Paris set to take place next month.
