Los Angeles, CA, United States q – Lady Gaga shared a message on Instagram talking about the passing of her good friend Sonja Durham after she lost her battle to cancer.

She posted a photo with Durham but it was unclear when the photo was taken. In the snap, the two posed for the camera while they were looking at a balloon that Lady Gaga was holding. The singer said she does not know how to put a price on friendship and she is not sure how she will assess the size of its meaning. She said that only the heart knows and it is too special for words.

For the death of Durham, Gaga said she feels two competing feelings. The first is she will live every day with more passion, determination, compassion and more giving than ever before because Durham was like that and it was what drew them to each other. She also said that her dear friend had a way of releasing the singer from her anchor of her own sadness, which held her back, and Durham loved her while she learned how to cope with fame and stay inspired.

The other feeling she has is that of “being robbed of the last 10 years of my life, friendship and career with her. Like someone took her from us, and with that taking took all the good times. I know that's not true, and I know that I have those memories forever, I'm just in shock that I will never have new ones with her. I'm in shock that I won't see her again until I pass too.”

Lady Gaga then vowed to be a little stronger every day for Durham and for anyone who's lost somebody to cancer. She also vows to be a warrior for her and be a “voice for cancer patients so the world can continue to improve the dialogue and the fight.”

Durham passed away from stage IV cancer. When Lady Gaga headlined the Coachella Music Festival earlier this year, she dedicated “Edge of Glory” to Durham.
