"Loretta is mourning the passing of her eldest grandson, Jeffrey Allen Lynn, who died unexpectedly on Monday, June 6. Jeffrey was 47 and lived and worked on Loretta's ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. Jeffrey was the eldest son of Jack Benny Lynn, Lynn's second child and eldest son who tragically drowned in 1984.

"Loretta was scheduled to perform this Friday, June 10 in Miami, Okla. and Saturday, June 11 in Hinton, Okla., however those shows will be postponed to July 8 and November 12 so Loretta can be with her family," the statement concluded.
Our thoughts are with Loretta and her family during this difficult time.
