"My two favorite Buddy's are now playing in Heaven. My heart is absolutely broken and I can't even begin to imagine a world without my Papa but I know one day we'll meet again and that's what keeps me going," Lovato, 23, captioned an Instagram photo of the two on Monday, Sept. 28.

"I hate writing this… But RIP Papa," she continued. "I miss you so much already. I love you. Please keep my Mimaw in your prayers."
