The Cast Of ‘Martin’ Reunites At Tommy Ford’s Funeral

Last week we were hit pretty hard with the shocking news that Tommy Ford of Martin fame had suddenly passed away at age 52. Per earlier reports, Ford was taken off life support after an aneurysm ruptured in his stomach. He was previously in the hospital just two weeks prior for an unrelated knee surgery.

Friends and Martin co-stars Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold and Carl Payne had something of a Martin mini-reunion at Ford’s Homegoing service on Wednesday. The trio shared a cheerful group selfie on their social media accounts while extolling a few kind words about their fallen friend.

“Today was not easy,” wrote Tichina Arnold, who played Tommy’s on-again, off-again love interest Pam on the classic sitcom. “But by the grace of God we all got through it. Words cannot express our gratitude for all of your Prayers, Positive thoughts and Support for us throughout the years. Tommy will be missed but most certainly never forgotten.”

Missing from the group shot was Martin Lawrence. However, as Arnold revealed, the 51-year-old comedic actor was present, adding, “[Martin] was there too…just not in this picture. Lol! God bless you all.. #LoveConquersAll #MartinShow.”

Despite their earlier issues, it’s good that Martin and Gi–err–Tisha were able to set aside their differences to bury their friend together.
