Fans across the country love tuning in and hearing radio host, Delilah, play music and offer advice to listeners. She has grown in fame over the years for her one of a kind radio program that soothes and comforts listeners and helps ground folks in positivity.
Delilah Rene Luke is 57 years old. She is also a mother to 13 children and has been through her fair share of heartache in her life. Now, she is mourning one of the greatest losses in her life.
It was reported recently that her son, Zachariah Rene, had taken his own life by committing suicide. He was only 17 years old at the time of his death.
“He was my wild child,” she said to PEOPLE of now-deceased Zachariah. “13 broken bones, umpteen trips to the hospital with appendicitis, tonsillitis, a fractured skull. Wild but so, so sweet.”
Fans have reached out to Delilah from across the United States and offer their support and prayers during this tragic time. Since his passing, Delilah is now opening up about his death and the message he left in a goodbye letter.
He had been recently “traumatized” from a car accident and had also gone through a rough breakup, she said. “When he found out he couldn’t graduate, he spiraled into depression,” said Delilah, adding that despite that, “he was doing so well,” during his final days.
“His goodbye letter did not mention sadness, anger, angst or depression, just a madness about feeling like this world was not his home,” said Delilah.
She also mentioned he was currently being treated for depression and even counseled by experts. She says she’s relying on God to get her through this time.
“He was being treated, counseled, and embraced fiercely by family and friends while battling depression for some time now,” she wrote after Zach’s death. “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.
