  1. What a BEAUTIFUL woman, I am heartbroken, because I know depression all too well. I have sang a ton of their songs in karaoke and I love all of them. Rest in peace finally Naomi. Now God has you and you won’t be sad or suffer anymore.❤️😢

  2. I am manic depressive and need a liver transplant thank the lord for my support system and the people who are in my life.?I’ve had some very low times I don’t know how I got through a lot of them except my faith and my love! I’ve been so dark never thought I would see the light! But now instead of saying just let me get through this alone I have Jeff who I trust and have confided things in him I never trusted anyone to speak my truth! And sometimes you don’t need advice just someone to listen. I pray for her daughters ( I have two ) a son and grandkids and great grand babies . I want to just tell y’all don’t ever blame yourselves u couldn’t have done anything if she was set on it! Know that she’s always alive in my and countless other lives. To honor her live a wonderful life with laughter and love. Every time you see a red cardinal that’s her letting you know that the pain is gone and she is with our lord! God bless you and again in my prayers! Love Teresa

  3. Loved all the songs so much the world will be at a loss with her gone. The Judds were so wonderful. My Sincere condolences to her family

  4. Raised my children with the music of these beautiful women. Music suffered a man exceptional loss. I’m just a peon but my heart goes out to fellow red heads Wynonna and Ashley. I suffered ( and continue) with mental health. Depression is dangerous. Hug your loved ones. Love them while you have them. I’ll miss this influential remarkable woman. RIP

  5. Naomi Judd will be sorely missed, the Judy’s were a mainstream vocal group in American country music 🎶. R.I.P. with the Lord Jesus Christ Almighty!!!

  6. My favorite was “Love Can Build A Bridge”. Yes, Naomi you will be missed but OH what a homecoming you received! Now you will be singing to Jesus and the Father and Holy Spirit. I am looking forward to singing with you as well. I want to sing the song I loved hearing you and Wynona sing.

  7. My all time favorite JUDD’s song was MAMA HE’S CRAZY. Although I did have others that I liked. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ashley and Wynonna, also to all those that loved the JUDD’S.

  8. Omg, so sad to hear about Naomi
    She had a gift that will keep on giving
    Prayers to the family RIP ms judd

  9. RIP Naomi 💗 I’m so sorry for loss Wynonna and Ashley. Our first dance at our wedding was Momma his crazy( not sure if that’s the title) I lost my husband in 2006. We always enjoyed listening to The Judy’s. God Bless you and keep you.

  10. I didn’t listen to their music regularly but always loved seeing her/them on TV and on the awards shows. They definitely were loved by their country music community and the thousands of fans. We will be listening to her music for generations. I have a daughter who’s suffered a long time with depression with several very bad episodes. Thankfully she is in a good place right now but I know can change like the flip of a switch. Often the pressure of having to keep to a set timetable or a job depending on showing up on time just to difficult to achieve. Knowing she would once again let someone down would be enough to for her to fall before even trying.
    I know, thru God, Naomi is finally at peace. Rip Miss Judd. Prayers 🙏🙏🙏out to her family and all who love her.

  11. Sad to hear. I can remember exactly where I was standing in a kitchen listening to “Momma he’s crazy”. They were a delight as a mom/ daughter duo. Sad to hear her life had many struggles. May it be true I pray that she knew Jesus to be her Savior. Prayers for her talented daughters. My dad died of emphysema as he suffered in schizophrenia. He was a kind gentle soul. For those still living with mental illness thus side of eternity …I would encourage you to look to Christ who knows our hearts in this life do break and who has sent a comforter to hold us when we ache. Thank you for making me aware she had passed.

  12. I followed the career of the Judd’s Naomi. They are one of the best duo groups i have listened to, Naomi will be greatly missed. My condolences to Wynonna, Ashley, Larry, grand children and any other family members. Even with the loss of Naomi, I am glad they are being inducted to the hall of fame of country country on May 1st, 2022. All of u are in my prayers and thoughts.

  13. I’m not sure why she’d been on my mind so much lately, I had seen a movie about them and their humble beginnings about 3 weeks ago and in it, she always stayed true to who she really was. She had a voice like no other. I hope she had a lot of happiness in her life, she certainly gave a lot and will be remembered for a very long time.

  14. We lost our 46 year old son to mental health 3/2/2022. I know I couldn’t have changed the trajectory of his life, but the pain is like no other. He and his siblings grew up with The Judd’s al9ng with every kind of music. As with our son, there is a tremloss and two new bright shinning stars above us. RIP

  15. OMG Prayers to you & your family. Also, prayers to all that live with Mental Illness and its side effects. My Episodes lasted 2 years we need to Talk, we need Awarness, we need some where to Speak on this growing 🙏 illness 🤒
