Fans were shocked and saddened on October 12, when Tommy Ford, of the hit TV show Martin, passed away from complications of a stomach aneurysm. All of his co-stars from the series have shared beautiful sentiments about working with him and today (October 19), they gathered to lay their friend to rest at his funeral.
Tichina Arnold, who played Pamela James on Martin and was Martin’s former love interest on the show, posted a picture to Instagram that featured herself, Tisha Campbell (who played Gina) and Carl Payne (Cole).
Sensing that social media would jump all over the fact that the series star of Martin, Martin Lawrence, was not in the group photo, Arnold addressed it in her caption. She wrote, “…And PLEASE don’t ask “Where’s Martin?..” he was there too…just not in this picture. Lol! God bless you all.”
It was lovely that they all came together to honor someone who made us laugh every week on one of the funniest shows to ever air. Ford may not be here with us anymore physically, but his memory will live on in hilarious Martin reruns.
Today was not easy..but by the grace of God we all got through it. Words cannot express our gratitude for all of your Prayers, Positive thoughts and Support for us throughout the years. Tommy will be missed but most certainly never forgotten… And PLEASE don't ask "Where's Martin?.." he was there too…just not in this picture. Lol! God bless you all.. #LoveConquersAll #MartinShow
