Only a day after Marvin Jones revealed the shocking news of the death of his six-month-old son Marlo Jones, the family gathered together at a game for the Detroit Lions in his honor.

According to PEOPLE, Marlo passed away suddenly on Friday, but his cause of death has not been disclosed. Marvin first broke the news in an Instagram post a day after, in which he said:

"Yesterday the Lord called home a piece of my family's heart, Marlo. It is hard to believe that our little angel, our fighter from day one, our son 'Marlito' has unfortunately passed away and is no longer here with us."

The devastating news comes only days after the couple shared several pictures and videos enjoying the festive season with their family, Marlo included.

On Christmas day, Marvin shared a video of his family giving his fans well wishes and wearing matching plaid pajamas that read "Merry Christmas" on the front.
