What a wonderful thing to do. I am a nurse and very often loved ones are forgotten about. She can hear you and although she may not be able to talk to you or express her joy, have peace in your heart knowing that she knows and loves you. Thank you for sharing. ❤— Patricia Ann (@Patrici56879257) March 9, 2020

Perry announced her pregnancy upon the release of her new song and music video, "Never Worn White," which was just days before she revealed her grandmother's passing. In a heartfelt tribute, Perry shared several photos and videos of Hudson and waxed poetic about the impact she had on her life.

"I don't know when a soul enters a new vehicle but if there is an afterlife where there's a waiting room of the coming and going my mind wonders if the soul that is waiting to come into my world is getting a kiss on the forehead from my sweet Grandma that departed this earth yesterday. My heart hopes so," Perry wrote, in part.
"A lot of what I am is because of my father... and he is because of her. She started it all, as she used to remind us and I'm so grateful she did."
Perry continued: "Ann Pearl Hudson was a fighter. She survived the Great Depression, raised 3 kids on her own as a seamstress, making G strings for showgirls and other such characters in Vegas. She was always authentically herself, funny and full of all the sweet cozy things you think of when you think of grandmas."
"She was a wonderful grandma and I will forever carry some of her in me."
"May she rest in deep peace and kiss the forehead of the soul to come and let them know everything is gonna be OK, especially now that they have gained an angel to look over them."
