“God bless your family. This is a tough one for you guys and everyone is sending love,” one user commented. “Merry Christmas Karen and to Mac in heaven,” another fan wrote.

Meyers’ post comes just a couple of weeks after it was revealed that Miller’s final album Swimming was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Grammy Awards.

Miller, born Malcolm McCormick, was found dead in his Studio City, California, home on Sept. 7. He died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol, PEOPLE confirmed. He was 26.

The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner ruled in a statement released in November that Miller’s death was accidental and due to mixed drug toxicity.
