Naturally, Delilah was utterly distraught, as any mother would be. At the time, she posted a heart-rending tribute to her boy on her Facebook page. She wrote, “My son Sammy passed from this world today into heaven, but he left behind a piece of his amazing soul in all that met him… He was a precious, precious young man and I praise the Lord that I was allowed to be bathed in Sammy’s love as his ‘MommaBear.’”
After Sammy’s death, his mom and the family slowly picked up the pieces and got on with their lives. Delilah continued with her hugely successful radio career, and in 2016 she celebrated two decades on the air. But sadly tragedy was still not yet done with her. In October 2017, another terrible event struck Delilah – her son, Zack, ended his life.
