Terrence Howard, the handsome actor known for his fun-loving ways in “The Best Man Holiday”, as well as the star of the Oscar-nominated film, “Hustle & Flow,” shows us a more personal side as he gets emotional while speaking about the loss of his mother:
“I loved my mother dearly, more than anything. I miss her voice and the way she used to sing to me. She is an irreplaceable woman and there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about her. I lost my mom to colon cancer after a six-year-hard fought battle with the disease. She died too young. She was diagnosed at age 50 and gone by 56.
My mom was a woman of incredible strength. She shaped me to be the person I am today and I am forever grateful to her. While I hate that I’ve lost her, she would love to know that her death — her battle with colon cancer — is able to save other lives.
