Malnourished as well as dehydrated, she was worried about his health.On the other hand, the celeb says that Waylon was like a rock to the family. They loved him all so much that he roamed around without any fences.
Towards the end, the star singer expressed her gratefulness for having Waylon in her life. Above all, the fact that her husband Brendan McLoughlin spent time with him during his final moments is truly something she will always cherish.
