THEBOXHOUSTON.com – Today Beyonce paid tribute to one of her biggest fans Dennis Tillet who was tragically killed this month. She penned an open letter on her website to recognize him and included candid photos of Tillet throughout the page. Bey has been known for penning open letters, but this one is probably the most thoughtful letter she could ever write:
MY HEART BREAKS TO LEARN OF THE PASSING OF ONE OF MY BIGGEST FANS AND A LOYAL MEMBER OF THE BEYHIVE. DENNIS HERBERT TILLET WAS TAKEN IN A RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE ON JULY 4TH WHEN HE WAS SHOT AND KILLED BY A STRAY BULLET.
DENNIS WAS LOVED AND ADMIRED BY HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY. HE WAS FUNNY AND BRILLIANT, GRADUATING FROM THE PRESTIGIOUS MOREHOUSE COLLEGE. HIS BEAUTIFUL SMILE WILL BE MISSED AND THIS SHORT INSPIRED LIFE IS GONE TOO SOON. MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY, MANY FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES.
LIFE IS PRECIOUS AND WE ARE REMINDED EVERYDAY TO LIVE EACH DAY TO ITS FULLEST AND LOVE EACH OTHER.
MUCH LOVE BEYHIVE,
What a great way for Beyonce to show appreciation to her fans.
