In a statement, Sarpong said her brother’s “passing is a loss for the world” and urged anyone going through “tough times” to seek help.

I love my brother very much. Sam was an amazing human being. His passing is a loss for the world

I’d ask anyone who is going through tough times to seek help. Please talk to someone.
