He wrote, “Happy birthday to my co, so extremely proud of you and inspired by your love, artistry, and gangsta!
“To be able to watch you take this lifetime by its neck and make it yours is something i will forever be grateful for.
“But to have you as my mother is the greatest gift I could ask for. To be all that you are while always having the time to be there, love and support me unconditionally is truly remarkable.
“The whole marvel universe ain’t got s— on you, your the real superhero! Love you mom! This day and everyday YO DAY!!”

“Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian.
“He is such a bright light who cared so deeply about the happiness of others. Our family asks for respectful consideration during this private time. Thank you,” the statement reads.
