Many people were shocked to learn about Stephen “tWitch” Boss’ suicide last week. His family and friends are mourning his death, which will take time. Connie Boss Alexander, his mother, recently paid homage to her late son on Instagram. She shared a snapshot on Instagram of a previous FaceTime conversation between her and Stephen before his untimely demise. She captioned it brilliantly, “Oh, if only I could FT to heaven…”
She thanked her family and friends for all the love, prayers, and encouragement, she said on her Instagram story. She added that please understand that she is aware of all messages, texts, postings, and phone calls. She is at a loss for words right now. Please know that she will contact one as soon as she is able. “Stephen Laurel, your mother loves you to eternity and beyond.” she said in a handwritten letter to her late son.
Prior to the devastating news of Boss’ death, his mom’s Instagram was filled with photos of her with her son. His mom had commented on Instagram on Boss’ birthday, scrolling through, she realized that no image can really express how happy and proud I am today. Regardless of his professional achievements, what impresses her the most is the guy he has evolved into…from a son and brother to a husband and parent. She couldn’t have imagined a more perfect journey. It’s not always easy, but the end result is everything.
Boss committed suicide at the age of 40. His wife, Alison Holker Boss, praised him and the legacy he leaves behind in a statement. She stated that Stephen brightened every place he entered. Above all, he treasured family, friends, and community, and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the family’s rock, the finest husband and father, and an example to his admirers. She went on to say to say he left a legacy is an understatement, and his good effect will be remembered for a long time.
Boss rose to prominence while working as a DJ and subsequently as a co-executive producer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Fellow celebrities also paid poignant tributes to Boss. His So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars colleagues paid tribute to him. He was very lovely, courteous, and generous, wrote Pinkett Smith. So many individuals suffer alone. She wished he had realized he didn’t have to. May his lovely, sparkling spirit rest in the arms of the Great Supreme, and may the same Higher Power heal his loved ones’ broken hearts.
