“We put it to rest this morning. And in the Jewish faith, they do it very quickly, so you hardly have time, for me, to process,” she told the newspaper in a interview aired Wednesday. “I am still processing.”
She’s not the only one to ‘keep treating’, however, as she put it, ‘the whole family’ including ‘the boys’ are still in shock. King and Shawn shared their sons Chance, 21, and Cannon, 20. King also has a son, Larry Jr., 59, with his ex-wife Annette Kaye.

However, Shawn and the clan managed to find a gentle way to honor their late patriarch.
“All of us, it was just family, we wore Larry’s suspenders, all of us,” she revealed. “And she was a beautiful, loving … just perfect, just perfect. She was family. There was no showbiz, no, none of that.”
Despite all the tragedy Shawn and his family have faced, she said they were able to come together to be there for each other.
