Over nine years ago, Andy Grammer lost his mom Kathy and has done so much to honour his late mother since then, including giving his daughter Louisiana the middle name "K." Recently, the singer, who said on Instagram on the nine-year anniversary of his mom's death that he attributes some of his success to her "pulling strings through the universe," was eating breakfast in Hampton Beach when he came across five "super cute" older women who reminded him of his mom.
"I don't know why but [they] made me miss my mom hard and I felt a strong urge to pick up their check," he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself in which he appeared to be on the brink of sobbing. "I don't know them and didn't want to bother them, but I just did it."
The singer wrote that he thought about leaving afterward because he didn't do the deed for the acknowledgment, but something made him feel that they would like to hear that the reason he did it was simply because he missed his mom.
"So I walked over and said, 'You are five of the sweetest ladies I've ever seen; I lost my mom awhile back and something about seeing you made me miss her this morning, so I'm getting your check.' The lady on the end popped up with arms wide open and said 'COME HERE, I lost my son and really needed this.' And then she gave me a mom hug I needed and I gave her a son hug she needed. We are all so connected."
We're not even going to lie about it — we're totally crying.
