The wife of Jake Flint laments, “We should be looking through wedding pictures, but instead, I have to choose clothes to bury my husband in.”
Jake Flint, a celebrity in US country music, passed very suddenly at the age of 37, only hours after getting married.
The singer-songwriter from Oklahoma, who was married to Brenda on Saturday, passed away in his sleep.
“We should be looking at wedding photos, but instead I have to choose clothes to bury my husband in,” his bereaved wife wrote on Facebook.
“People aren’t supposed to suffer this much.
“My heart is broken, and I really want him to return.
I can only take so much more. I require him here.
She also posted a photo of the newlyweds dancing on Facebook along with the caption “I don’t understand.”
Clif Doyal, Mr. Flint‘s publicist, reported that the musician passed away in his sleep early on Sunday, November 27, in the morning.
“On Saturday, Flint and Brenda Wilson exchanged vows. He was 37.
The official reason for death is still unknown.
Mr. Flint’s family expressed their “brokenness” over the “tragic loss” of their adored son, brother, uncle, and lover, known to them as Jacob, in a statement that Mr. Doyal published.
The significance he placed on his friends, family, and living life to the fullest was reflected in the lyrics of his songs.
“Everyone who knew him has a narrative to tell about his charm, brilliance, and compassion.
“We are incredibly appreciative of the outpouring of love and the numerous lovely tributes that have been shared regarding the influence Jacob had on so many people’s life.
We are appreciative that his brilliance and love are preserved in his songs even as we mourn what we know might have been.
On Monday, a memorial service for Mr. Flint will be held at Cedar Point Church in Claremore, Oklahoma.
The Red Dirt Relief Fund, an organization that gives emergency help financial grants to musicians in need, has been requested as a substitute for flowers by the family.
A fundraising initiative has also been started to help Mr. Flint’s family, who has been called “a terrific man in our music community.”
The performer was slated to be in Claremore on Friday while on a multi-state tour.
His former manager, Brenda Cline, praised him as the “funniest, most funny, hardest working, dedicated artist I have ever dealt with in my career,” saying she “loved him much like a son.”
She posted on Facebook, “Jake has a million friends and I’m not sure how everyone can cope with this awful loss.”
“For so many people, this will be terribly difficult. Jake, you are loved and will always be in our hearts.”
