“My heart is so broken,” she wrote on Instagram. “The world lost 2 of the most incredible people yesterday. The only comfort I can find is they passed together and I know they couldn’t have handled it any other way. Deb and Fred were like parents to me ever since I was a little girl. They lived 2 doors down from me and their daughter Melissa and I would run the streets together for years and years…. Anytime I went back home to CT I would stop by and surprise them… and every-time Fred would cry. My last trip there was last year and I was doing an appearance at the casino… I didn’t have any time to spare I was running so behind but I just had to stop by…. and I am so glad I did. I love you Uncle Fred and Aunt Debbie. Thank you for treating me like your own. I will miss your texts Fred always checking up on me and the fam. Rest easy until we meet again. Please pray for Melissa and Freddy and the entire Zorick family.”
