Our hearts go out to Sawyer Sweeten‘s family and the cast of Everybody Loves Raymond.
On Thursday, it was reported that 19-year-old Sawyer, who played the role of Geoffrey Barone on the hit show, shot himself while visiting his family in Texas.
How heartbreaking. We can’t imagine how the actor’s twin brother, Sullivan Sweeten, must be feeling.
Sawyer’s off and on-screen sister, Madylin Sweeten, released the following statement on Facebook:
“At this time I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to the ones you love. Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you.”
Check out a sweet photo of the three siblings from 2010 (below):
Once again, we send our condolences to everyone who knew and loved Sawyer.
