Tommy Ford has just been laid to rest after passing away from a ruptured aneurysm in his abdomen. Present at his funeral was most of the cast from the hit sitcom that they all starred in: Martin.

Tichina Arnold, who played Gina in the popular series, posted a photo with co-stars Tisha Campbell-Martin and Carl Payne from the memorial service for Ford.

She paired the photo with a heartfelt caption. Take a look, below:

Though he isn't pictured, Martin Lawrence, who played the leading role on the show, was also present at the service, Arnold clarified.

Lawrence spoke on his bond with Tommy to Entertainment Weekly, saying, "Tommy was not only a great costar, but he was a great mand and friend. He always brought with him his spirituality, a positive attitude and so much joy. I am sad the world lost a great talent and that I lost a wonderful friend. God bless him and his family."

Tommy Ford was taken off life support last week after fighting for his life at an Atlanta hospital on Oct. 12, after suffering a ruptured aneurysm in his abdomen.
