Colin Jost made a sweet gesture for Dana and Paula Carvey following the news of the death of their son Dex.
During the closing credits of the Saturday Night Live episode hosted by Jason Momoa, Jost held up a sign showing his love for the couple during this difficult time in their lives.
“We love you Dana and Paula,” read the sign Jost held up.
The Carveys released a statement on November 16 informing the public of the tragic news of their son’s death at the age of 32.
“Last night we experienced a terrible tragedy. Our beloved son, Dex, died of an accidental drug overdose. He was 32 years old,” Dana and Paula said in the release. “Dex has accumulated a lot over these 32 years. He was extremely talented in many fields – music, art, film, acting – and he pursued them all with passion.
Dana would later announce that he was going to take time off social media to digest his son’s death.
“I’m going to take a break from work and social media to figure out what life is like now that we’re a family of three. We will heal and carry on as best we can. Our darling Dex would have wanted it to be this way,” Dana said in the statement posted on social media.
