Tameka “Tiny” Harris is currently mourning the loss of her father Charles Pope. Pope, 76, passed away in his Atlanta, Georgia home after a long bout with Alzheimer’s.
His passing was confirmed by Tiny herself who took to Facebook to publicly mourn.
“Today I lost my father and right now I’m heart broken and I’m sad I’m crying because my father was my everything I was his everything. I never thought I would lost him this soon…he was the best father, he did everything he could for me and he never let me down,” wrote Harris.
She later added the below message on her personal Twitter.
Pope was the last surviving member of soul singing group The Tams and was profiled several times on Tiny and T.I.’s reality show “The Family Hustle.”
His battle with Alzheimer’s motivated T.I. and Tiny to create their For The Love of Our Fathers foundation aimed at funding research for the disease.
T.I.’s late father also suffered from Alzheimer’s.
