We have all been so heartbroken since the passing of Naomi Judd on April 30th. But as sad as it has been for all of us fans, I truly can't begin to imagine what Wynonna, Ashley, and those close to Naomi must be feeling.

Wynonna opened up on social media and her words are both heartfelt and heartbreaking, as she posted: "Checking in. There is so much happening in the world right now. So before I sat down to write this, I thought, “No…I just don’t know what to say.” Then, I heard the words from my life coach asking me, “What do you know?” And I began to cry. WHAT DO I KNOW?? I DO know, that the pain of losing Mom on 4/30 to suicide is so great, that I often feel like I’m not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did. This cannot be how The Judds story ends.💔 I DO know, that in order to be a healthier grandparent to my firstborn grandchild Kaliyah, {born 4/13, 2 weeks & 2 days before Mom left}, to break the cycle of addiction & family dysfunction, that I must continue to show up for myself and do the personal healing work. I know that it is a simple steps program, and those steps are not easy to take at times. Therefore, I’ve made a commitment to keep doing the “next right thing,” and schedule weekly appointments so that I continue with the ongoing work, even when I have good days. I DO know, that I feel so helpless—right now especially. I DO know, that as corny as it sounds, “Love Can Build A Bridge.” I find myself humming the song that Mom wrote for the fans, to myself here on the farm at night. I really DO know, that I’m not able to do this grieving thing all by myself, and that it’s okay to reach out for help. I will continue to fight for my faith, for my SELF, for my family, and I WILL continue to show up & sing. Thank you all for your love and support. Let’s check in more often. 🎶💜🎶 📷: @matthewpaskert"

Thoughts certainly continue to be with Wy and the friends and family of Naomi Judd.
