“So sad [crying emoji] RIP Lloyd, you will be missed [broken heart emoji] Sending my prayers to his family and friends during this difficult time,” Carey said in a retweet of her Filipino fan page’s tribute to Cadena.

The local Mariah Carey fan page described Cadena as one of their “most loved members,” and noted that “will be remembered as a generous, kind, loving & humble human being.”

Other than his hilarious online content, Cadena was known for his love of the iconic singer and even has Carey’s picture from her upcoming memoir as his Twitter header.

One of Cadena’s last posts on Twitter, made on Sept. 2, was fittingly a retweet of one of Carey’s posts where the singer joked about being confused with Marie Curie.
