“There are few words to adequately express the deep pain and sorrow we feel right at this time. During this time of bereavement the Lawrence family ask that all persons exercise regard for their privacy as we struggle to come to terms with the unfortunate event,” the statement read.

“We thank everyone who has reached out in a myriad of ways and ask for your continued love and prayers during this difficult time.”

Aidonia and his wife Kimberly Megan are mourning the loss of their son, King Khalif Lawrence, who reportedly passed away from cancer on Saturday.
