Jennifer Love Hewitt's mother, Patricia Hewitt, had passed away yesterday after losing a hard fought battle with cancer. She was 67-years-old.
Here's what a rep for the family said:
This is incredibly sad.
Joel Morales, a 12-year-old boy from Harlem, committed suicide after kids at school bullied him about his height and intelligence.
His mother found him hanging from a shower rod in the bathroom on Tuesday night.
He did not leave a note.
A close friend of the young boy said that only hours before his death Joel had mentioned he was "tired of being bullied."
Here's what the deceased's sister said:
"I know in my heart it was bullying that made him do it."
Another tragedy such as this only further entrenches our belief that not only does bullying need to eventually end, but it needs to happen sooner rather than later.
Otherwise it is inevitable there will be scores of other Joel Morales's who feel the only way to end the pain of bullying is by ending their precious life.

Rest in peace, Donna…Heaven Knows, it's not the way it should be.
Jan Berenstain, who co-created The Berenstain Bears with her husband Stan (pictured above next to her), has passed away due to stroke.
The 88-year-old children's book author died in her Pennsylvania home on February 24, a day after suffering a major stroke.
The author published her first Bears book in 1962. 50 years and over 300 more books later, her son Mike says she was still hard at work up until the very end, explaining:
"Every day she was very productive. She was working on two books and had been doing illustrations until the day before she passed away."
It's always unfortunate to see someone go, but we'd like to think she is in a better place with her co-author hubby, who died in 2005.
Both creators of the beloved book series may be gone, but their spirit will live on through the impressive work they created and continue to inspire more generations of children because their son has confirmed he'll pick up where his mother left off.
Rest in peace, Jan!
It's a sad day for baseball.
Gary Carter, a Hall of Fame catcher who played for both the Montreal Expos and New York Mets, passed away on Thursday after battling inoperable brain tumors since last May.
The 57-year-old was nicknamed "The Kid" and described by sports agent Gerry Petrie as:
"Sincerity, honesty, wholesomeness - he's the kind of guy you want your son to be. And it's real. Gary is no phoney. He's one in a million. He loves his family, God and baseball. They call him The Kid, and he truly is a kid - not immature or foolish, but with a kid's openness and joy and purity."
It's always awful when someone with such a good heart dies too young, but at least his daughter recognizes he is in a better place, writing in a statement:
"He is in heaven and has reunited with his mom and dad. I believe with all my heart that dad had a STAND-ING OVATION as he walked through the gates of heaven to be with Jesus."
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends who are grieving his loss. Rest in peace, Gary!
