Sorry to have to mention someone else who has passed away, but this is shocking news. Coast to Coast AM has posted this sad message:

Art Bell’s beloved wife of fifteen years, Ramona, died unexpectedly last night after an asthma attack. At present, the exact cause of Mrs. Bell’s death has not been determined. It apparently took place during her sleep.
Until her death, Art and Ramona Bell had not been apart a day since they were married.
Mrs. Bell had suffered from asthma for years, and took her normal steps to control the attack, which occurred sometime last night in Laughlin, Nevada where the Bells were taking a brief vacation.
Ramona Bell was 47 years old.
Our deepest condolences to Art and his family.
