Today our family lost the most important woman to us all..My grandmother Jimmie Lee Laster! She raised 8 kids as a single parent & lived to see 94!! When I was a kid she convinced me to go to 12noon prayer with her daily by promising me lemon ice cream. It was during those times God called me to the ministry at the age of 10! Thank you grandma. You knew something that I didn't know but you were wise enough to use ice cream to put me on the right path!! You will be missed but never forgotten!

Losing a grandmother the day before Mother’s Day must be difficult. Haddon’s mother, Dr. Joyce Haddon is alive and well. He also posted a message about her facebook as well.

Happy Mother's Day to the strongest woman I know Joyce Haddon. You are not just a mother but you are a friend!! Love you to life mom!!

Haddon didn’t disappoint. He also made a post to his wife, Dominique, and mother of his two children, Destin and Denver.

Words can't even express my love for you as a friend, wife & a mother to our 2 daughters!! You are everything we needed and more. Happy Mother's Day from Daddy, Destin & Denver. We're gonna do whatever it takes to make this day special for you! Your wish is our command mama because we love you @domerella!!

The "Fix My Choir" star will have to break away from his hectic filming schedule to be with the family to participate in the expected memorial or funeral of his grandmother. Deitrick is from Detroit, but there is no mention of where his grandmother resided.

Thank God for grandmothers, because they play a critical role in our lives. R.I.P. Jimmie Lee Laster
