YouTube star Grayson Dolan is remembering his late father. On Friday, March 8, the internet sensation posted a touching tribute to his dad, Sean, who died of cancer back in January of 2019.

“My best friend. I miss you man,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a sweet snap of the pair.

As J-14 readers know, Grayson and his twin brother, Ethan, have been very open about how hard their father’s tragic passing has been for them — and we’re honestly so amazed by their strength.

But it turns out, Ethan and Grayson are unfortunately only two of the many celebrities who have sadly lost a parent. Stars like Vanessa Hudgens, Dove CameronDemi Lovato and more have all also opened up about the death of their mom or dad. Louis Tomlinson even wrote a song about losing his mom, and boy, was it sad.
