We've loved watching Rico Rodriguez grow up on our television screens as the mature and romantic Manny on Modern Family.

He's always optimistic and always looking for the good in people, so when we heard his heartbreaking news, we could help by cry.

Rico posted a photo of himself enjoying a milkshake with his father Ray this morning, announcing that his beloved Dad had passed away.


The caption read as a loving letter to Ray and the wonderful times they had spent together.

"This has been the toughest week of my life.

"My Dad was the most kind hearted, loving, hard working, determined, and funny man I have ever known.

"He was like a super hero, he had the ability to get the best out of you day in and day out.

"I'm gonna miss your hugs. I'm gonna miss your advice. I'm gonna miss your smile, and I'm gonna miss your laugh.

"I know you're looking down at us right now giving us the green light to move forward. I miss you Daddy. I'll love you forever - Your youngest."

We're sending our thoughts to Rico and his family during this hard time.
