*Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson joined hundreds of mourners outside of her late brother’s Paisley Park compound on Thursday and gave words of comfort to his fans.

“He loved all of you,” Tyka (aka Tika Nelson) told the crowd, according to Sky News. “Thank you for loving him back.”

Tyka, who lives in Minneapolis, also posted messages to fans on what appears to be her Facebook, writing, “Hi, Thank U 4 Loving My Brother! He LOVED Playing His Music & I KNOW He Loved U 2.”

She quoted John 15:13, writing, “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”

Today, Tyka shared a link to CeCe Winans’ song, “Don’t Cry for Me,” which is sung from the perspective of a person who has died, asking people not to cry over their death.
