Facebook has apologized to at least one person over its Year-in-Review feature.

The default tagline for the feature is, “It’s been a great year! Thanks for being a part of it.” It then compiles a series of photos from the user’s Facebook, highlighting the biggest moments of 2014.

However, for some users, the feature showed some painful memories.

According to the Washington Post, Eric Meyer, a web design consultant and writer, lost his daughter to brain cancer on her sixth birthday. Facebook’s Year-in-Review featured a face of his daughter, surrounded by celebratory clip art.

In a statement to the Washington Post, Facebook’s Jonathan Gheller said he reached out to Meyer to apologize.
