Whiddon says, "They were very devastated as I broke the news to them. It just became very devastating, emotional moments over the phone."
"She loved her children. She has two children. She loved her children very deeply very much. From my perspective, she was a good mom. She showed those kids she loved them quite a bit," says Whiddon.
