Disney Channel Alum Still “Madly in Love” with S.O. Who Passed Away
The holidays mark what many refer to as “the most wonderful time of the year” — but that saying isn’t so for everyone, especially Disney Channel alum Tiffany Thornton and her family.
This time last year, the 30-year-old former star of Sonny with a Chance lost her best friend, Brittany Blanton, and her husband, Chris Carney — on two separate occasions. Both instances are tragic enough all on their own, so the fact that they were practically hours apart is all the more heartbreaking.
To commemorate the upcoming anniversary of Chris’ death, December 4, she posted the following Instagram, with the most heart-wrenching caption:
“As we leave Branson and head back to Hot Springs I can’t help but think of my husband and how much I wish he was still here,” she began. “On Sunday it will be an entire year that Chris has spent in Heaven. A year since I heard his voice in person, since his parents hugged him, since I heard the news that collapsed me to the floor. A year since he asked his brother to go hunting with him or asked to golf on a beautiful day, a year since he kissed his boys goodnight and told them how blessed he was to be their daddy.”
“My heart still has a hole in it,” she continued to say, regarding the father of her two children, sons Kenneth and Bentley. “And I know Chris’s family aches for him too. And his friends. This pain of not having him near will always be with me. My heart is nowhere near ready to move on with my life and I’m ok with that. I am still madly in love with my imperfect soulmate and I have no idea how long that takes to change, but I can tell you nearly a year later that it hasn’t changed at all yet.”
To cap everything off, she said, “I sometimes reach out for him while I’m driving, crying out and wondering why he isn’t still sitting next to me. One day God will give me the answers. Until then I’ll just take it one prayer at a time. Please keep Chris’s family in your prayers during the holidays. It’s a tough time for them and for the boys and I. And please know that I’m so grateful for each and every one of you who has reached out and who has been praying since Christopher passed. It doesn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated.”
Did you read that? She’s still “madly in love” with him. UGH.
Sadly, all of these female celebrities know what it’s like to lose her significant other:
