Stephen “tWitch” Boss‘s mother shared a tribute to her late son on Instagram Wednesday.
The heartbreaking post featured a past FaceTime photo from a chat between Connie Boss Alexander and Stephen before his unexpected death. She poignantly captioned the photo: “Oh if only I could FT to heaven…”
A esposa dele, Allison Holker Boss, confirmed his passing in a statement to PEOPLE: “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”

Two days after Stephen died, Connie expressed her grief in an Instagram Story post. “Family and friends, thank you for all the love, prayers and encouragement,” ela escreveu. “Please know I see all the messages, texts, posts and the phone calls. I can’t use words right now. Please know I will reach out when I can.”
She added a line specifically to her son: “Stephen Laurel, your mother loves you to eternity and beyond. 💙 💔”
Along with Allison and Connie, Boss is survived by his three crianças — Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and Weslie, 14.
