When Louis Tomlinson's mom Johannah Deakin passed away on December 9, there was an outpour of love for the Tomlinson family from their relatives, friends, and of course, the One Direction fandom.
Johannah has also been a blessing to Directioners (interacting with fans, sharing photos of the boys off cam and from Louis was younger, etc.) and before she passed, she wrote a short thank you letter for the fandom. Dan, her husband, shared it on the social media site. What an angel.
Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne also expressed their deepest condolences for Louis and his family on Twitter when news broke out of his late mother's passing. It was said that after Louis' performance on The X Factor UK Finale, the 1D boys sans Zayn Malik were backstage in support of their friend.
Send Louis your condolences!
