This is so touching! Tommy Ford was such an important part of the 'Martin' cast, and his TV family came out to his funeral to pay their last respects with a sweet picture and touching messages.
"Today was not easy..but by the grace of God we all got through it," wrote Tichina Arnold on Oct. 19. The Martin star was mourning the loss of Tommy Ford, along with the rest of the cast, who posed for a sweet pic together. "Words cannot express our gratitude for all of your Prayers, Positive thoughts and Support for us throughout the years. Tommy will be missed but most certainly never forgotten...
And PLEASE don't ask "Where's Martin?.." he was there too...just not in this picture. Lol! God bless you all.. #LoveConquersAll#MartinShow"
The photo features Tichina, Carl Payne,
and Tisha Campbell dressed in all black. They say that Martin Lawrence was also there, but he skipped the photo. "TODAY WASN'T EASY," wrote Carl on a repost of the pic. "WE LAID OUR BROTHER TO REST. HOWEVER THROUGH GOD'S GRACE AND THE LOVE,SUPPORT, AND PRAYERS OF FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES ALL IS WELL..KEYS ALL REMEMBER AND CELEBRATE THE MAN WHO BROUGHT SO MUCH JOY AND LAUGHTER TO OUR LIVES ..TOMMY FORD. P.S. Martin was here..just not in the picture #LEGACY #HISTORY #RIPTOMMYFORD #martin." So touching!
Of course, Tommy died on Oct. 12, 2016. The Martin star was just 52 years old when an aneurysm in his abdomen ruptured, and he passed away in an Atlanta, GA hospital. Luckily, he had the support of his friends, family, and costars.
