Lisa Jackson had the perfect song to tell her daughter how she felt about her.
The song “Why I Love You” by MAJOR perfectly captured the mother’s love for her little girl.
Just before 4-year-old Antonia Miles passed away last week from Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, an inoperable brain tumor, Jackson tried to put a video montage of her daughter together to the song, but was unable to do it.
“I used to play this to her and tell her my feelings clearly on how much I am going to miss her weeks before the final days of the end,” Jackson wrote on Facebook. “I told her how sorry I was that I couldn’t save her.”
Jackson said she would dedicate the song to Antonia’s Celebration of Life held this past Sunday.
On Wednesday, MAJOR had a surprise of his own, sending a special video message to Jackson on the passing of her daughter.
“I want you to know that I’m praying for you and I want you to stay as strong as possible,” the recording artist said.
“I hear that my song, ‘Why I Love You’ got you through many days,” he says, looking at the camera. “And I pray that it takes you on even further.
“From my heart to yours,” he continued before breaking into song, “this is why I love you. This is why, I love you.”
