James White paid tribute to his late father, Tyrone, in an Instagram post Tuesday.
Tyrone White was killed in a car crash in Miami on Sunday that also left his mother, Lisa, in critical condition.
White made his first public comments with a touching post on Instagram that not only remembered his father, but also wished his son, Xzavier, a happy first birthday.
“Happy 1st birthday Xzavier!,” White’s post read. “I hope I can be as good of a father to you as my father was to my brother and I! I still can’t quite process everything that’s going on right now but when I look at you, you give me life! May you Rest In Peace Dad, we miss you much already. ❤️”
White was with the Patriots in Seattle for their game on “Sunday Night Football” against the Seahawks when he learned of his father’s death.
