Kix has lost his older sister, Midge. The singer shared via social media Thursday (Feb. 20) that he was on his way to Maine to pay his final respects.
On my way to Maine for a last goodbye to the sweetest God ever gave us- RIP my sister Midge :(— Kix Brooks (@KixBrooks) February 20, 2014
According to her obituary, Midge suffered a recurrence of breast cancer in 2010, which metastasized to her brain. She continued to work every day until she and Stewart sold their agency in late 2013. The couple attended the 2013 Kentucky Derby with Kix and Barbara Brooks. She passed away on Monday (Feb. 17) at her home, surrounded by family and friends.
