Delilah Rene discusses the loss of her sons

One year after the tragic suicide of her 18 year old son Zack, well-known local & syndicated radio personality Delilah Rene (Luke) sat down with the Associated Press‘ Alicia Rancillo for a touching discussion about her loss.  She has already experienced this horror once with the death of her 16 year old son Sammy as a result of complications from sickle cell anemia.  Filled with revelation & emotion, Delilah gives some frank advice for those dealing with family or friends who are facing the death of their child or grandchild.  As we face the grieving parent, it is often one of those awkward moments of human interaction & sensitivity when the right words to say don’t often pass from our lips & mouths.  Delilah offers the right way to do this, based on her decades of experience advising us all on “Being a Human Being #101”.  The article is a syndicated AP release that has appeared in a number of newspapers through the US & Canada.  Locally, you can read more in the entertainment section of “The PI” & keep a tissue handy.
