There is sad news in Rihanna's world today.

Posting to her Instagram account earlier this afternoon, the R&B songstress shared photos of a heartfelt letter written to her by Natalie, a fan who passed away recently. Originally shared by family members on the late girl's Instagram account, Rihanna not only liked the post and decided to let the world know how special a young lady Natalie was.

Rihanna captioned the picture with "we lost one of our soldiers... sending love to your family and loved ones, and to your extended family here in the navy! we're sad to lose you @bajan_navy get your beauty sleep until we meet...#ripNatalie." Natalie's sister has since expressed gratitude to the music superstar for the kind words.
