Radio Host Delilah Shares Devastating News with Listeners
As a fellow parent, my heart aches for her. I can't imagine losing a child.
Delilah shared the heartbreaking news on Facebook on Saturday. Her post read:
"My dear friends, I need to share some devastating news with you. In the early morning hours, Tuesday, October 3, my son, Zachariah, took his life.
He was being treated, counseled, and embraced fiercely by family and friends while battling depression for some time now. My heart is broken beyond repair and I can not fathom how to go on...but I have to believe he is at peace with the Lord and that God will get us through.
I will be absent from the radio and on social media for a time as I grieve and try to process this loss with my family. In the mean-time we'll be playing some of my favorite shows from the recent past. I'll look forward to my return, as you all lift me up so very much!
Please pray for my beloved Zacky, and I will pray for all suffering from this debilitating disease called depression."
This isn't the first child that Delilah has lost. She has 13 children, 10 are adopted, and according to the NY Daily News she lost her son Sammy in 2012 due to complications from sickle cell anemia.
Hundreds of thousands of fans have offered their support on the radio-host's Facebook page. You can visit Delilah's Facebook page here and listen to her radio program 7-days a week starting at 7:00 PM on Y105FM.
