“My son Dade is very brave. Today he and his brother Kobe and sister Kaya lost their mother. Lisa Askey Faison. She and I never really saw eye to eye but one thing we did share was our love for our children. RIP Lisa,” Faison shared. “You raised three beautiful children into fine adults and I am forever grateful for that. May god bless your soul with light and love.”

The son that he and Lisa shared, Dade, originally posted an image, which showed him holding his mother’s hand. He’d captioned the picture, “I just wanted to say thank you so much mom! You have been there for me when I needed you most.”

“I cant believe it has come to this but I know you are in a better place right now,” the message went on to read. “I love you with all my heart and one day we shall meet again. You worked so hard and never gave up no matter how hard times got. R.I.P mom and until next time! #RestInPeace #BestMom #Love.”

Faison and Askey married back in 2001 after the two of them met during her time in nursing school. They had three children together, however, ended up splitting back in 2005.
