Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ mum Connie has revealed the last text message exchange she had with her son before his death last December.
The Ellen DeGeneres show cast member took his own life six months ago when he was just 40 years old, leaving behind his wife Allison Holker and their three children.
Speaking in a new interview, Connie – whose son was best known for being a DJ and producer on the Ellen DeGeneres Show – said she’ll still ‘pick up her phone to text Stephen’.
As for the final words they shared, Stephen text her saying: ‘I love you, mum,’ to which 59-year-old Connie responded, ‘I love you more.’
She told People: ‘Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday, and then other times it feels like it’s been so long since I’ve seen him.
‘When I think about him, I try not to dwell on how he left this earth. This is not totally the end. That is where my peace comes from.’

‘He was someone that was just beautiful and he lived his life from love, and he made you feel a certain way. My family and I have always said that we wanted to make sure that our purpose was looked out by bringing joy to people.
‘That’s not going to change for us, it’s going to feel a little bit different but we know that that’s our purpose and we’ll still do that to this day.
‘And I hope that we can remember the feeling that he gave us and remember that we can still move from there and choose love and we can still choose grace and we can still choose kindness and I will always be there for you guys and I appreciate you guys being there for us at this moment, it goes a really far way for us.
‘So thank you and I hope that you guys remember how special you are and how much of an impact you make.’
