    "Thoughts and prayers also go out to her husband, John, at this time. This is devastating news!"

    "Since it has been leaked on social media, I would really appreciate everyone’s understanding that it has already been a difficult time having lost both of our parents and a cousin recently.

    "Please just keep my sister in your thoughts and prayers and respect our family’s privacy. Thank you."
