Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones announced the heartbreaking news that his 6-month-old-son Marlo, who was born in July, has tragically passed away.

Marlo, the joy that you brought to us every day, with that smile, and that energy was like heaven on earth. You will always be in our hearts. We will always remember you,” “We did not get the chance to hear your first words (It would’ve been in Spanish too) ☺️. We didn’t get to see you run with your brothers and sister, you ran with them with your eyes every day … Whenever we have a bad day, We will think of your smile. We miss you already buddy and will forever love you. Rest peacefully our sweet baby boy. You have gained your wings.”

The Detroit Lions released a statement offering their sympathies to Jones.
