Ray Romano And Cast Say Goodbye To Fellow Everybody Loves Raymond Star Sawyer Sweeten Following The 19-Year-Old's Suicide
Ray Romano leads the pack of his fellow co-stars to memorialize his former tv-son, Sawyer Sweeten, after the 19-year-old took his own life on Thursday.
The 57-year-old comedian worked with Sawyer for nine years on the hit show. He stated:
"He was a wonderful and sweet kid to be around. Just a great energy whenever he was there. My heart breaks for him, his family, and his friends during this very difficult time."
As we previously reported, the teenager, who played the role of Geoffrey Barone on the popular show, shot himself while visiting family in Texas.
We can only imagine that the cast of the show feels like they've lost a family member. The rest of the Everybody Loves Raymond family sent an outpouring of respects to the young actor and his family via social media.
Doris Roberts, who played Sawyer's grandmother on the show, took to Facebook to send her condolences.
