Louis Tomlinson's late mother, Johannah Deakin
, saved a final heartbreaking message thanking One Directions fans for "everything."
"Johannah asked for me to send this afterwords," her husband, Dan Deakin tweeted from her account on Tuesday. "She wanted to thank you all, and to let you know that you have been amazing. Right from the start. You changed Louis’ life, but also her life. Your support now is as strong if not stronger than ever."
"So from Johannah one last time, thank you everything xxx," Dan wrote in another tweet.
Johannah, 43, passed away on Dec. 7, after being diagnosed with a "very aggressive form of leukemia" earlier in the year.
"Johannah was first and foremost a truly amazing mother to seven children -- Louis, Lottie, Félicité, and two sets of twins, Phoebe and Daisy and Ernest and Doris -- whose individual talents and success are testament to the principles and beliefs she instilled in them," her husband said in a statement to ET.
Following a pre-planned performance on the U.K.'s X-Factor
, just days after his mother's untimely death, Tomlinson thanked fans
for their "incredible support."
It's not just fans showing love to Tomlinson during this trying time. Ex-One Direction member Zayn Malik sent condolences
to his former bandmate on Twitter.
"@Louis_Tomlinson love you bro!" the pop star tweeted last week. "All of your family is in my prayers. Proud of your strength and know your mum is too x."
