Sasha Farber announces the loss of his close family member and friend
Sasha Farber and his wife Emma Slater are core parts of the Dancing With The Stars family. Together, the couple achieved many milestones in recent years. They even earned United States citizenship together.
But today, the couple is grieving. On Instagram last night, Sasha announced that he lost his cousin. The two were very close.
“This hurts beyond words, and never in a million years did I think I would be writing a post like this about my little cousin,” the DWTS pro began his post. “Andrew and I came to Australia as little kids, and you could say we where partners in crime. Everywhere he went I went, & everywhere I went he went. I remember one day Andrew called me to come outside, He picked me up and he said I have a surprise for you, we drove to a private airport, where I soon realized I was going to be his first passenger on a 4 seater plane. He was so excited I’ll never forget it.”
Sasha went on to talk about how much his cousin Andrew loved planes and how much he lit up a room.
“I love you Andrew and I will always cherish our times together R.I.P 💔and we will laugh and joke again I promise, LOVE YOU MY DEAR COUSIN,” he concluded.
Sasha doesn’t say what happened to his cousin. But it appears that he passed away very young.
