Colin Jost made a sweet gesture for Dana and Paula Carvey following news of their son Dex’s death.
During the closing credits for the Saturday Night Live episode hosted by Jason Momoa, Jost held up a sign showing love for the couple during this difficult moment in their lives.
“We love you Dana and Paula,” read the sign Jost held up.
The Carveys released a statement on Nov. 16 informing the public of the tragic news about their son dying at the age of 32.
“Last night we suffered a terrible tragedy. Our beloved son, Dex, died of an accidental drug overdose. He was 32 years old,” Dana and Paula said in the statement. “Dex packed a lot into those 32 years. He was extremely talented at so many things — music, art, filmmaking, comedy — and pursued all of them passionately.”
Dana would later announce he was going to take time off social media to process his son’s death.
“I will be taking a break from work and social media to figure out what life looks like now that we are a family of 3. We will heal and carry on the best we can. Our darling Dex would have wanted it that way,” Dana said in the statement posted on social media.
