Delilah Rene, host of the nationally-syndicated radio show Delilah, has announced a hiatus from radio following the death of her 18-year-old son Zachariah, who took his own life on Tuesday, Oct. 3.
Delilah released the following statement:
“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.”
