On Saturday, Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. passed along the extremely sad news that his infant son Marlo had passed away unexpectedly.
Today, following Marlo's funeral, Jones' wife Jazmyn posted an absolutely heartbreaking message on Instagram.
“As I laid my sweet baby boy to rest today; I am still in disbelief that he gained his wings. My heart hurts knowing I will never get to hold you again Marlo, but I know you will forever be with me buddy. Thank you EVERYONE for all the calls,texts & prayers. I will respond soon, but know they are all appreciated and help more than you know. I know with all the love and support that my family has received from so many we will be okay. God give my baby all the hugs and kisses. I love you Marlo.”
Marvin posted the following to his Instagram following Sunday's game.
“Marlito, I still can't believe you're not here with us, but you're up there looking at us with this smile. THE WORLD LOVES YOU SON. I LOVE YOU SON … My heart … Pa Forever!”
Please keep the Jones family in your thoughts and prayers during this extremely challenging time.
Rest in peace, Marlo.
