Christian rapper Andy Mineo’s mother has passed away.  His mother, Fran Mineo, died after a losing bout with leukemia.

“This past Tuesday my mother, Fran Mineo, passed away,” he wrote on Instagram. “She battled Leukemia this past year and was on the upswing after her stem cell transplant. Unfortunately, there were complications and she went home to be with the Lord.”

“I had the gift of sitting by her bedside as she passed, to hold her, read scripture and pray over her. She died surrounded by family and her children,” Mineo continued. “My family and I have been grieving her loss this week together in Chicago. We’ve wept from our souls. We have laughed remembering her, told countless stories, looked at pictures and held each other when we needed it.”

The rapper honored his mother for her strong work ethic. “Franny always made it happen. Working the night shift, raising kids on her own, shopping at garage sales so we could have the best clothes and sneakers. She lived so much of her life like Jesus. It was hard to not be impacted by her, even if you only met her once,” he shared.
