As reported by People magazine, former Disney Channel star Tiffany Thornton's husband has died tragically, and her old co-star Demi Lovato has taken to social media to express her condolences.

Chris Carney, the husband of Tiffany Thornton, died when a vehicle driven by his friend collided with a tree in Arkansas this week. Thornton had starred on the popular Disney Channel show "Sonny with a Chance" alongside Lovato, until Lovato left the show amidst a personal crisis.

Now, with the news of Carney's death, Demi has posted the following lengthy eulogy on Instagram, adorned with a photo from Thornton and Carney's 2011 wedding:

Been trying to figure out what to say all day... This morning I woke up to terrible news. My good friend Chris Carney has passed away. This picture is a perfect example of the love he shared with Tiff and how much fun he was to be around. I've been to many weddings but this is by far the most memorable because the way they looked into each other's eyes and the love they had for one another. There were tons of laughs and tons of tears and I'll never forget the way he looked at her. It doesn't seem real and I'm still in shock.. Still speechless. I don't know how to put into words how heartbroken I am for Tiffany and their two baby boys. You're already missed Chris.. And Tiffany I love you so much.. I'm so unbelievably sorry... There are still no words.
