Wynonna Judd shares her thoughts on the passing of her mother, saying, “This Cannot Be How The Judds Story Ends.”

Wynonna Judd is opening out on how she is doing one month after her mother, Naomi, passed away at the age of 76 as the result of a suicide.

On Instagram, Judd posts an emotional message in which he writes, “Checking in. There is a tremendous amount going on in the world right now. When I first got down to compose this, my first thought was, “No… I’m really at a loss for words right now. Then, I overheard my life coach asking me the question, “What do you know?” After that, I started to cry.

She continued, “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, she continued, “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 {first} 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,” she shared.

“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.

She also said that she knows she is unable “to do this grieving thing all by myself, and that it’s okay to reach out for help,” adding “I will continue to fight for my faith, for my SELF, for my family, and I WILL continue to show up & sing.”

In conclusion, she writes, “Thank you all for your love and support. Let’s check in more often. 🎶💜🎶.
