    Rock and Roll icon Tina Turner shared a somber moment on social media when she posted a photo of her spreading the ashes of her oldest son Craig Turner, who died following a suicide earlier this month.

    “My saddest moment as a mother,” Turner wrote, who held a rose in her hand as the photo was taken.

    “On Thursday, July 19 2018, I said my final goodbye to my son, Craig Raymond Turner, when I gathered with family and friends to scatter his ashes off the coast of California,” Turner continued. “He was 59 when he died so tragically, but he will always be my baby.”
