On June 19, “Southern Charm” star Taylor Ann Green shared her first public message about her brother, Richard Worthington “Worth” Green, after his sudden death at 36 years old on June 8, 2023.

“Not enough words can encapsulate who Worth was and the impact he left behind,” she wrote on Instagram alongside several pictures of her older brother. “June 8th, 2023 The Lord called you home. We are going to miss your goofiness, your bear hugs, and that infectious laugh. I will always admire the steadfast love you had for your family, friends (too many to count), your girlfriend and Jesus Christ. You truly went out on top of your game and we so look forward to seeing you again one day.”

Green continued her tribute post with a quote from American comedian Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx which said, “Blessed are the cracked, for they are the ones who let light in.” She then asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made instead to Terra Firma, a charity that her brother was about to begin working with.
