"Something Beyond Pain"

HGTV star Carmeon Hamilton is trying to find a way to move forward after her husband, Marcus Hamilton, was killed in a motorcycle accident last Saturday (August 28). The celebrity took to Instagram earlier this week to announce the passing of her spouse.


“It is with deep sorrow and an eternally broken heart that I tell you that the love of my life, Marcus Hamilton, has passed away,” Carmeon wrote on Sunday (August 29). “I was alerted by MPD late last night that Marcus succumbed to his injuries from a motorcycle accident yesterday afternoon,” the HGTV star told her supporters.

“I’m no stranger to loss, but this loss brings something beyond pain,” Carmeon shared. “Something I can’t describe,” the celebrity continued. “I’m now missing a major part of myself and that void seems to grow more and more every second. I can’t bring myself to figure out Davin’s and my next step, because there shouldn’t be a need for one.”

Carmeon and Marcus Hamilton had one son, Davin, who began the seventh grade three weeks ago. Marcus took to Instagram earlier this year to celebrate Carmeon on Mother’s Day.

“The first time we met August 6, 2006, almost 15 years ago your smile captured my heart and it continues to capture my heart to this very day,” Marcus wrote to his wife at the time. “Then November 28, 2008, almost 13 years ago you gave me the most precious gift a woman could give a man … a child! There aren’t enough words in all the languages of the world combined that can express the love and appreciation that I have for you. I hope that this makes you smile and I will do all that I can to make sure you never stop smiling.”

Marcus’ untimely passing has thrust Carmeon and Davin into unchartered territory. Nevertheless, the HGTV star has received much support from fans. “In the midst of this immense pain came a wave of support from the community of people that we’ve worked so hard to build,” Carmeon said in her announcement earlier this week. “They are the only reason I have the strength and ability to put these words in writing,” the HGTV star said.

Carmeon Hamilton is an interior designer best known for winning Design Star: Next Gen. The Tennessee native also specializes in interior plant care as well as personal style. You can learn more about Carmeon on her website.
