Kanye West had a sweet moment on Twitter Sunday: The rapper posted two touching tweets paying tribute to his late mother, Donda, who died in 2007 at age 58. 

“Thank you for watching over our family. Nori and Kim say happy Mother’s Day… And Saint smiled,” West tweeted, referring to wife Kim Kardashian and the couple’s two children, North and Saint. 

He also shared a photo of a nameplate necklace spelling out Donda’s name in cursive. “Found this in Mom’s storage,” he wrote. “I love and miss you.” 

West’s previously paid tribute to Donda with 2015’s “Only One,” a lullaby sung from her perspective. He’s currently working on a video game adaptation of the song that he previewed at February’s Yeezy Season 3 event, where he also debuted T-shirts featuring an illustration of his mom on the front and one of his late father-in-law Robert Kardashian on the back.
