"Thank you to my father and his wife, my mother, my sisters, my grandmother and New York family, my husband's family, and to my husband for never leaving my side," Shayne added. "Nik, your strength can never be measured. I love you."
Nik also expressed his grief but also his gratitude that his wife's life had been saved. "You saved your mother's life with your passing and I will never forget how much this means to me, R.J. In family, we sacrifice for each other. You gave your life for us," Nik wrote in an emotional letter to his late son. "You showed me how to love. I need you to know that I held you, spoke to you, kissed you and that you'll be remembered. You are perfect. You will always be my son. I'm proud of you, always. I love you, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie."
This is just so sad – I am heart-broken for this family.
