This loss is heartbreaking, but everyone is invited to celebrate Sam Sarpong's life.
So, for the funeral, his loved ones would like to share the sentimental ceremony with friends and fans, and have decided to open it up to the public.
Sam's family said in a statement:
"We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to each and every one of you who have reached out to us during this incredibly difficult time. Our hearts are broken, and we are struggling to come to terms with the untimely passing of our dear Sam. Your words of encouragement, prayers, and shared memories of Sam have been comforting for us, and we cannot thank you enough."
The public celebration of the TV personality's life will be on November 21, at Shepherd Church in Porter Ranch, California.
Following the service, the procession will head to Burial Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills. His loved ones are asking that in lieu of flowers guests provide donations.
The family would like to meet the people who have reached out since the London native's sad passing, because they'd like to hear their "ideas to keep Sam's memory alive."
Our hearts go out to everyone affected during this tough time.
