“Today, I realized I lost the most important woman in my life,” Tiller openly revealed in the letter, which has been saved by Revolt.

“I lost my mother at a very young age so I couldn’t really process what was happening. Today is the first time I carefully read the letter you wrote to me 4 years ago and I tried my hardest not to get tears on it or let it blow away in the wind.”

The 27-year-old lamented that he hadn’t read the letter sooner, “I took it out of my important-things-box weeks ago and I told myself I needed to read it again carefully but I never got around to it.”

Tiller also opened up about one of his last gifts to her, a car.  “A few months ago I bought you a car after you asked me for a year straight but I always told you to wait until I got back on the road to start making money again. Something told me to just go get that car anyways because I knew how bad you wanted to leave the house,” he detailed before saying “that was the happiest I’ve seen you in a long time.”

He also profusely apologized to his late grandmother, “I’m sorry I didn’t bring Harley around more. I’m sorry you never got to meet Kelly. I love you and I forgive you for everything and I’m sorry I never got to tell you.”

Harley and Kelly are Tiller’s daughters; Kelly was born in June 2019.

No cause of death was revealed. Tiller’s since completely wiped his account.
