“Lance was taken from us far too soon,” she began. “Thank you for all your overwhelming love, support, and beautiful stories shared on these platforms over the last day. I see your messages and can’t begin to express how grateful I am to have them.”

“And to the thousands of Destiny players who played in special tribute to Lance, thank you,” she added.” Lance loved you as much as he loved the game.”

Stephanie ended by sharing that donations in her husband’s name can be made to Mom Cares. The nonprofit, which is based in Lance’s hometown of Baltimore, MD, supports mothers and families of children in the NICU by giving prenatal and postpartum doula care, meals, and more.

Stephanie, a former theater worker, and Lance Riddick met and began dating in 1999 and married in 2011, according to Daily Mail. They shared two children; a daughter, Yvonne and a son, Christopher.
