Cassie is grieving her grandfather, whom she called "Pop," after he passed away recently. On Saturday (June 13th), the singer paid tribute to her late grandpa on Instagram with some heartfelt words. "I wish I could hug you," she wrote on a photo of the two of them smiling and holding hands. "I miss and love you, Pop. I pray that you can feel my heart. Sending all of my love to Nana and my entire family. I wish I could be with you guys right now. I love you."

Many friends and fans offered their condolences to her and her family. Fellow artists like Kelly Rowland and Snoh Aalegra commented some heart and prayer emojis. Cassie's husband, Alex Fine, wrote, "Such a great man."

Cassie and Alex were blessed late last year when they welcomed their first child together. Their daughter, Frankie Stone, was born on December 6th, 2019. Since then, Cassie has shared tons of photos of her baby girl and their beautiful family on social media. Her most recent shot of little Frankie was posted last month on May 19th. She captioned the photo with the symbols for each of their zodiac signs: Virgo for Cassie (August 26th, 1986) and Sagittarius for Frankie.
