What a horrible year……

My sister Debbie, George Jones, My beloved Patti, and now Ray Price?

DALLAS — Ray Price, among country music's most iconic crooners, died Monday at the age of 87 — just one day after Rolling Stone, USA Today, CMT and others prematurely buried the Texas-born singer.

The Country Music Hall of Famer was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late 2011, and spent months in and out of the East Texas Medical Center in Tyler. But the cancer spread to his liver, lungs and intestines, and on Thursday Price returned to his Mount Pleasant home to receive hospice care. His wife, Janie, had been by his side ever since, holding his hand while the singer of "Release Me," "Crazy Arms," "For the Good Times" and other jukebox immortals began "fading rapidly," in the words of Fort Worth country-radio icon Bill Mack, who is serving as the family's spokesman.
