NBA superstar Dwight Howard has revealed that in the midst of dealing with the stress of the pandemic, his family has suffered a tragic loss after the mother of his son passed away.
During the interview, Howard explained that the hardest part of losing Rios was having to explain her passing to their six-year-old son.
Although Rios passed while many states were quarantining and practicing social distancing, Dwight Howard noted that he and his son were fortunate to be able to attend the funeral while still following the state’s guidelines.
Howard, who was planning to invite Rios to his home with him and his son during the NBA hiatus when he learned that she has passed away, added that the entire experience has taught him to cherish each day because “every moment counts.”
