Cameron Boyce's father, Victor, has shared the last photographed memory of his late son who suddenly passed away.
“My son. Just hours before he was snatched from our lives," Victor wrote with a picture of his son, which shows the young star smiling in a denim jacket. “I miss him terribly. I hope that no one ever has to feel the agony I’m feeling but no one is immune to tragedy.”
He added: "The outpouring of love and support our family continues to receive is so beautiful and appreciated. Thank you all for helping us through our worst possible situation."
Boyce, who was epileptic, died in his sleep on Saturday (July 6) after suffering a seizure. He was 20. According to TMZ, law enforcement sources later confirmed the performer died of "natural" causes, referring to "conditions in the body which result in death."
Victor was among the first of Boyce's family to release a statement in light of the devastating news. “I’m overwhelmed with the love and support our family has received," he tweeted Sunday (July 7). "It really does help to ease the pain of this nightmare I can’t wake up from. I can’t thank you guys enough."
In response to their son's friends and co-stars paying their condolences, Boyce's parents released a statement thanking fans for the outpouring of love and support in a tribute to their son, who they called "the very definition of human kindness."
They added: "He was the rock of our family and he always had a positive, heartwarming, insightful and caring outlook on everything and everyone."
