One day after sharing the news of the sudden death of his mother, YouTuber Roman Atwood and his family are back in Ohio. The influencer’s wife, Brittney, posted an update for fans after they frantically flew back home from their vacation. They are still reeling after his mom, Susan Anne Christman, unexpectedly passed away after falling off a scooter and hitting her head. For now, the family is dealing with the shock one day at a time.

“We are home now,” Brittney shared on her Instagram Story on Friday, May 31, with a photo of her cuddled up on a plane with their young daughter, Cora. “Just want to thank everyone for all the love and prayers.” She also posted a picture of a private jet that she credited for getting them home “quick and safe.” The couple shares two older boys as well — Noah and Cane.

The family has received an outpouring of love and support since sharing the horrific news. “OMG I’m just seeing this. I don’t even know what to say. I love you and my family [and I are here for you and your family. I’m so sorry,” fellow vlogger Alex Mandel wrote on Twitter. YouTuber Deji also offered his condolences, “I’m so sorry for your loss man. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. Stay strong.” Professional Fortnite streamer SypherPK said, “Stay strong for your family. I’m terribly sorry for your loss, this is heartbreaking.”

Roman’s original statement about his mother’s death mentioned that he was temporarily stepping away from his public platform. “I need everyone to understand that I will be gone for a bit. I will be by my family’s side, especially my father’s [Curtis Dale Atwood II],” he noted. Of course, fans were more than supportive of this. Someone promised on Twitter, “I’m so sorry to you and your family … We’re all here for you and patiently awaiting your return.”

The famous YouTuber has seemingly not been on social media since posting the statement about what happened and probably won’t be returning for a while. “My heart is so heavy. We are all broken over here. Mom was everything to us,” his heartfelt note concluded.

Our thoughts go out to the Atwood family.
