Country music superstar Luke Bryan's brother-in-law, Ben Lee Cheshire, passed away on Saturday at the age of 46, and Bryan has said he is relying on his faith to get him through this tough time.
Bryan's only sister, Kelly, died in 2007 when she was just 39. She left behind Cheshire, known to the family as Lee, and three teenage daughters. Her death, which was unexpected, hit Bryan particularly hard since she was the only sibling he had left after their brother died in a car accident 11 years earlier.
"Losing my brother changed me tremendously and losing Kelly, even more. I literally do not take one second for granted," Bryan told People. "Your faith has to get you through all that. That's not saying you don't question it. But you just have to revert back to your faith in God's plan, that you'll be together again and that's what you have to go on." more >>

"I do think the conversation is important," she said.
