Donald Faison might be known for making people laugh, but on Wednesday, he shared a touching Instagram photo that struck a much more somber tone. The black-and-white image of two people holding hands is in honour of the 42-year-old Scrubs actor's late ex-wife, Lisa Askey, who recently passed away. "My son Dade is very brave. Today he and his brother Kobe and sister Kaya lost their mother. Lisa Askey Faison," he captioned the image. "She and I never really saw eye to eye but one thing we did share was our love for our children. RIP Lisa. You raised three beautiful children into fine adults and I am forever grateful for that. May god bless your soul with light and love."
Donald was married to Lisa from 2001 to 2005, and they shared twins Dade and Kaya, 18, and son Kobe, 16. Although he didn't reveal any details about Lisa's passing, his Instagram photo was a regram from his son Dade, who also had a heartfelt message for his mother. "I just wanted to say thank you so much mom!" he wrote. "You have been there for me when I needed you most. I can't believe it has come to this but I know you are in a better place right now. 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."
After splitting from Lisa, Donald went on to date CaCee Cobb for six years before they tied the knot in 2012. The happy couple now share a 3-year-old son, Rocco, and a daughter, Wilder, whom they welcomed in April 2015.
