The 58-year-old explained how his mother wasn’t inconsolable hours before her death. “She simply said that she didn’t get to see Carrie come back from London, she expressed how much she loved my sister,” he said. “She then said she really wanted to be with Carrie. In those precise words, and within 15 minutes from that conversation she faded out and within 30 minutes, she technically was gone.”
