Child star of Everybody Loves Raymond, Sawyer Sweeten, commits suicide

One of the popular Sweeten twins, child stars of hit US show Everybody Loves Raymond has killed himself. Sawyer Sweeten (left & centre) shot himself on the front porch of the family home in Texas yesterday morning April 23rd. He was 19 years old.
"This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred," the family said in a statement. "We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life. He was weeks away from his 20th birthday. At this sensitive time, our family requests privacy and we beg of you to reach out to the ones you love."
Sawyer played Geoffrey Barone in the hit show, which also featured his twin brother Sullivan as Michael Barone and older sister Madylin as Ally Barone. Everybody Loves Raymond ran from 1996 - when the Sweeten twins were just 16 months old - to 2005 when they were 10.

Took short cut to hell, and one way ticket to hell. Bad choice, and destination to spend one eternity.

I would like to differ...Let's not rule out murder. .In dis crazy world anything is possible.. .We have heard people been killed by the I family members accidentally and they shout murder

ROYAL PRIESTHOOD said...

We hav no right to take our lives bcos its own by d one, and true living God. So once u do ursef d favour to opt out of earth by taking ur life, God wil definitely repay u d favour to send u straight to hell.

So as we can see God is indeed d true living God, and creator of all tins. Once again we hav no right to tak our lives except God dat has d right to do so.

@royal priesthood PLS Jst stop displaying yourself. And who started that if you take your life short cut to hell? You to you judge, fornicate etc etc it's also a short cut to hell. No sin is greater than the other just shut it. Someone might live a great life and then decide to commit suicide and because of that one sin he will go to hell? Pls my God is not a vindictive God. Go back, take your bible and start from genesis again or which ever holy book suits you.
May his soul rest in perfect peace amen!
No one is to judge you don't know the internal battle he was fighting and btw, suicide takes a lot of courage. Not encouraging it one bit, but it's the cold truth.

ASAMPOKOTO said...

Ignorance is actually the worst disease ever. Sad!

May your existence not be a waste. Why are people so rude and callous with their words? Wtf?
Say RIP and keep it pushing. That's what a real Christian would do. Damn

I-cee Onwumeh said...

@Royal Satanhood, you are a beast for that statement.

WHEN CHILDHOOD IS MISSED,ADULTHOOD BECOMES COMPLICATED.

WHEN WE BRING UP KIDS, WITH NO MORAL VALUES AND NO CHRISTIAN VALUES, THEY GROW UP FEELING EMTY.

im scared of 21st century parenting.
RIP young one.

oh rip

ROYAL PRIESTHOOD said...

@ASAMPOKOTO, too bad dat ur ignorance precede u, and u seem to display total ignorance concerning dis subject matter.

Pls to upgrade ursef, and knowledge read d book's "Four hours interview in hell" and "I saw Heaven 1&2". True christians has 3 major pillars to uphold which r Righteousness, Holiness&Truthfulness. Dis r d standard's of d true living God which must b upheld till ur last day on earth.

If anybody I mean anybody b it pope, bishop or whtever person comes short of dis standard@their last hour on earth or during their journey unto eternity dat soul wil definitely miss Heaven mostly those dat tak their lives but those@their last hour of their natural death on earth if they r sinners, and they repent, and receive Christ in their lives they wil mak Heaven.

D truth is bitter, and we have to face, and live according to d standards, and principles of d living God.

Do u care to knw dat a lot of our celebs lik MJ&co did not mak Heaven even d last pope didn't make Heaven bcos he failed to repent of some sins in his life b4 he died. Jesus Christ revealed it, and took d person to Heaven&hell to see it hersef. Pls read those books I recommended to u.

@I-cee Onwumeh, I rather b a beast dat is sincere, and tells d truth to ur face than to b a ignorant sheep. I stil, and wil alwaz maintain my well enlighten statement dat is versed wit background of d words, and wisdom of d living God.

Thank u for reading, and God bless all of us as we sojourn our earthly mission to eternity.

Pls my brothers/sisters never take ur lives as in commits suicide for any reasons whtsoever for its straight cut, and one way ticket to hell.

Oh! Pls note even d slightest of all sins can take u to hell. All sins r sins, and God words said dat no one dat is wit sin wil ever see His kingdom. There r no small or big sins. REPENT&B BORN AGAIN.

Pls b enlighten dat we live by d grace of d living God, and not by our power. So we should alwaz strives to live in luv for God, and our fellow human beings.

Desist frm sin,and every sin bcos just one sin can take u to hell if u don't repent of it b4 u die.

My brothers/sisters some churches don't reveal dis tins to us dat is y most church members dwell in ignorance towards d race to Heaven. Dis is y God words said my people die bcos of ignorance.

God b blessed now, and forever. Shalom!

A real, and true christian wil never say RIP to someone dat commits suicide except dat so called christian is ignorant abt d true tenet's of God dat I just mentioned. Its straight cut to hell, and should never b entertained let alone indulge in it «SUICIDE».

U don't tak ur lives no matter wht bcos u r not d owner of ur lives for it belongs solely to d one, and true living God.

A word is enough 4d wise.

Yes, something like that happened in the film Tokarev, tho suicide was not ruled, but a mistake can be masked as murder.

What a waste of life, Yes. What a waste of opportunities yes. Many times suicide is a waste of the remaining Years you had ahead.

These white pple no de waste time to delete themselve... Na them sabi

Oluchi sampson said...

That's why I love blacks esp.naija people they hardly consider suicide as an option. What kind of depression will make a 19 yr old commit suicide?

ASAMPOKOTO said...

IS THAT NOVEL YOU QUOTED A HOLY BOOK THOUGH? Don't be stupid , referencing articles and books written by another you and I. Gullible goat.

ASAMPOKOTO said...

@royal priesthood you are a damn idiot and clearly your stupidity and ignorance preceeds you. So when you die , I hope no one says rip to you. I mean we are all sinners. So no rest in peace in advance mate. The fucking nerve. Comjng here to quote bullshit!

sugarwhip said...

Dear parents, please communicate with your children

El Haj said...

@RoyalPriesthood, you always write as if you are repressed. I wonder when God told u he has sent MJ & Pope to Hell?

You are a 2 ha'penny nobody waiting for crumbs from Stella & Linda. better get a life instead of displaying your folly to the whole wide world.
