Tiffany Thornton is coping with the loss of her husband Chris Carney and sharing sweet memories on social media.
The Sonny With a Chance star posted this pic on Friday of her late husband, who died in a car accident last week, sleeping next to one of the couple’s two young sons.
Thornton has been sharing memories on her Instagram page over the last week, writing on one pic that she and her sons are “learning to live one day at a time” in the wake of Carney’s tragic death.
“He was THE BEST father my children could ever have, an incredibly loving and sensitive husband, a wonderful brother and amazing son,” Thornton captioned a picture of the couple on their wedding day. “Thank you for your continued prayers for our family as we grieve the loss of my best friend Chris, the most incredible person I've ever had the blessing of knowing.”
There are so many things I want you to know about Chris but most importantly you must know how earnestly he pursued the Lord, especially in the past year. No one is perfect in this world and we all have our battles but it's the way we get back on our feet and turn it around that really counts. And he did it. He was so on fire for God and I know he flew straight into the arms of Jesus, his best friend. Please if you're reading this know that Chris would want you to know the Lord. Don't wait to run back to God. Our days are numbered and God is just waiting for you to come back to him. There is so much power in the redemption God gives us and I am so grateful that Chris and I got to fall in love all over again this past year. He was on such an amazing path for the Kingdom, having just gone on a mission trip to Peru with his dad where he shared his beautiful testimony and brought so many people to the Lord. He finished writing, directing, producing and editing his first Christian film and he and I got to star in it together as love interests who end up getting married. He was THE BEST father my children could ever have, an incredibly loving and sensitive husband, a wonderful brother and amazing son. He is already so dearly missed but I promise to spend the rest of my life sharing his testimony so that those who feel they have no place or have come from a place of struggle can learn that the love of the Lord can save us all. We will have a service in remembrance of him Monday, December 7th at 3pm and First Church of the Nazarene here in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Visitation will begin at 1:30pm. Thank you for your continued prayers for our family as we grieve the loss of my best friend Chris, the most incredible person I've ever had the blessing of knowing.
Carney, star of the MTV reality show twentyfourseven, was killed in a single-vehicle car crash on U.S. Highway 70 East approximately six miles east of Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he resided. Carney's mother, Ruth, is mayor of the town. The late father of two was 35 years old.
In another photo of Carney with his sons, which Thornton posted the day after his death, the actress called her late husband simply, “My life. My love. My angel.”
