“She died in our arms and in no pain,” the lead singer of the Randy Rogers Band said in a statement to radio station 93Q in Houston. “She was absolutely beautiful in every way. Her brain however was very sick.”
“She died after a week-long battle with a very rare condition. I’m sure you all have many questions and we have all the answers the doctors gave us,” Rogers adds, according to the radio station.”We can share the story with you. It’s quite an extraordinary one. A memorial will be planned soon.”
