Springsteen took to social media on Thursday to share some heartbreaking news. Springsteen’s mother, Adele, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 98. 

“I remember in the morning mom hearing your alarm clock ring,” he wrote in the caption of an Instagram video where Adele can be seen dancing. “I’d lie in bed and listen to you getting ready for work, the sound of your makeup case on the sink. And the ladies at the office all lipstick, perfume and rustling skirts, how proud and happy you always looked walking home from work.”
