This has since been updated to state that his mom has passed away.

From his facebook...

Hello
My Mom lost her battle yesterday. I am profoundly just... wrecked. I apologize but I am postponing the December tour until next spring / summer and taking a few months off to heal, deal, and sort her affairs. We are shell shocked, mind blown and heart shattered. My sister, Katie, and I want to thank everyone around the globe for the support. For now we just need some privacy. I debated about wether to share my open love letter to my Mom with the world....and I have decided to. If it inspires one soul out there to embrace their parents more, hold their kids tighter or repair any type of estrangement, then my vulnerability of sharing this will have a purpose. One love. See y'all in the spring. Devon and Katie.
****************************
Dear Mom,
I hope you know how proud I am of you. How deeply I love you and how cavernous the feeling is of knowing I will never look into your eyes again. It was you and me against the world when I was a kid. We never had it easy. But you always smiled. Most think being an Allman is what got me into music. Nope......My Mama is.
You bought me vinyl records on a shoestring budget. You knew they were like GOLD to me. When we had nothing, and had one bedroom apartments, you slept on the couch and gave me the sole bedroom. At one point you worked 2 jobs AND went to night school. You were always trying to better yourself. Also, you introduced my ears and my soul to the Beatles, Stones, Santana and beyond. You literally gave me the keys to the universe.
You allowed me to go to heavy metal arena concerts when NO ONE would let their kids go with me. You knew it was the equivalent, in a cultural and artistic sense, of going to an art musesum. You were progressive, before ANYONE was progressive. You also instilled in me a deep love for the beautiful creatures that roam this planet and absolutely were the cornerstone of inspiration for me to choose vegetarianism.
You inspired others immensely, you loved profoundly, you lived out loud. You were truly the epitome of "one in a million." You touched many many souls and you took better care of Katie and I than even yourself.
I watched you slip away today. Never has my heart been more broken. Never. I am in shock. I am numb. I am furious. I am lost in the middle of the woods crying under a tree.
When I was little you lightheartedly said "Son ....what would ya do without me!" as you winked. The thought always made me turn from the lighthearted to serious ....I always replied... "Mama I would sit under a tree and just cry."
I am sitting under that tree. Dance with stars. Float with angels. Be free. Be love. Be light. You were the best damn Mama and I will miss you....for the rest of my life.
Your little wabbit, your son, your number one,
Dev
