The guru, Longtime talk show host Larry King said during the weekend on Saturday that two of his children died within roughly three weeks of each other.
Larry King wrote on his Facebook feed that – “His son Andy King, 65, unexpectedly passed away of a heart attack in late July, while his daughter Chaia King, 52, died earlier this week “only a short time after having been diagnosed with lung cancer,”
“Both of them were good and kind souls and they will be greatly missed,” .
“Losing them feels so out of order. No parent should have to bury a child,” King said. “My family and I thank you for your outpouring of kind sentiments and well wishes. In this moment, we need a little time and privacy to heal. I thank you for respecting that.”
Both children were from King’s 1961 marriage to Alene Atkins.
