On Saturday, Naomi Judd of The Judds passed away at 76 years old.

“We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness,” said her daughters.

They said that she was “loved by the public” and she very much was.

Many stars in the industry have stepped forward to recall their own touching stories with her.

Kristin Chenoweth recalled that she had the “honor” of meeting her years ago.

She remembered how “so incredibly kind” she was during their encounter.

She also extended love and prayers to the Judd family, especially daughters Ashley and Wynonna.

“I never thought she’d go,” Kristin added at the end of her post.

“This is just so sad,” echoed RHOBH star Sutton Stracke. “Prayers to the family.”
