"I'm shocked and terribly saddened by the news about Sawyer," said Sweeten's TV dad, Ray Romano, in a statement released to PEOPLE. "He was a wonderful and sweet kid to be around. Just a great energy whenever he was there. My heart breaks for him, his family and his friends during this very difficult time."
