Nick Cave’s response to a fan about the death of his son is just extraordinary

People are sharing Nick Cave’s open letter about the death of his son, Arthur, who died aged 15 in 2015, because it is so beautiful.

The singer was replying to a question on the Red Hand Files website earlier this month.

This is what the fan asked.

“I have experienced the death of my father, my sister, and my first love in the past few years and feel that I have some communication with them, mostly through dreams. They are helping me. Are you and Susie feeling that your son Arthur is with you and communicating in some way?”

And this is how he replied.

Rufus Jones posted it on Twitter and it’s now been shared more than 12,000 times.

Here are just a few of the many responses it prompted.
