We are so devastated to learn that actor Sam Sarpong, who starred in the classic MTV show Yo Mamma, has tragically passed away at only 40 years old. His friend and series co-host Wilmer Valderrama, shared a very emotional message and throwback photo of them together on the show when he learned of Sam's untimely passing.
"I am so sad & so confused.. Sam did it all, believed in dreaming bigger than anyone around him.. We made memories together that will last us forever, thank you for sharing your talent with me and the world," Wilmer wrote. "You were a light everywhere you went and I couldn't be more proud of the journey you traveled.. You just left us too early Sam.. We will miss you and pray for you.. Once again thank you for all those years you dedicated to our show, we couldn't have done it without you! Find your peace my brother!"
Wilmer wrote a further message that reminds us all how precious life really is.
"To everyone in a dark place.. PLEASE, please talk to someone.. Anyone.. Trust me that we WILL listen.. You are not alone, there are so many people that feel the same darkness, let's help one another, let us shine hope on all those that need our understanding!!" Wilmer continued. "Reach out to someone and make your first step towards living a life you deserve. My prayers and heart are with family and friends that were blessed to know his beautiful soul #RIPSamSarpong."
Our thoughts are with Sam's family, friends, and everyone whose lives he touched.
