Sad news for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders who lost his daughter in law to cancer just two days after she was diagnosed with the deadly disease.

Dr. Rainè Riggs, who was married to Bernie's son, Levi Sanders, suddenly died over the weekend at the age of 46. Raine was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer, according to her obituary from the Lee & Martin Funeral Home in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania per PEOPLE.

"How can the world ever be the same when it said goodbye to such a beautiful soul? It is simple…. our world will never be the same," the family wrote of Raine.

"We promised this to her and so we will do it and hopefully every day the pain will become a little less. It is what she wanted," they added. "Rainè Riggs, we will miss you every day until the day we see your beautiful smile… I know you will be waiting for us."

Bernie has yet to address his loss publicly.
