I think most of the Disc 2 stuff is on the DVD that came with the Deluxe Edition of Sacrament though. At the end there is a melody and pictures of a woman with LoG then it says “In Loving Memory of Evie Carrano” so I googled the name. From LoG forums:

Evie Carrano was a beautiful person. She started with us as a merch girl and became our assistant tour manager and band assistant. Not only did she work for the band, but she was a dear friend to all of us….a sassy sister amongst the dirt bag brothers. She went to the doctor because she had a nagging ache in her shoulder and was diagnosed with Leukemia. It was a total shock to her and everyone around her. She was diagnosed on a Monday and by Tuesday of the following week she was gone. We all loved her and miss her dearly.
