Country singer Randy Rogers announced Wednesday that his infant daughter, Rumer Rain, born just a week ago, has died, the Boot is reporting.
Randy Rogers himself confirmed the news of his daughter passing on the Facebook page of Houston radio station KKBQ.
“Rumer passed away last night. She died after a week long battle with a very rare condition. She died in our arms and in no pain. She was absolutely beautiful in every way. Her brain however was very sick. I’m sure you all have many questions and we have all the answers the doctors gave us. We can share the story with you. It’s quite an extraordinary one. A memorial will be planned soon. We love you.”
The Randy Rogers Band also confirmed Rumer’s passing on its official social media platforms.
We are sad to say that Rumer Rain Rogers passed away last night. She was well loved, well cared for and in her parents loving arms.
