The funeral of Mama June’s daughter, Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell, and family and friends are in attendance
We’re told Kaitlyn wasn’t planning on speaking at her mother’s funeral, but her feelings changed while she was at the funeral home… and she shared memories of her time with Anna, some of which led to laughter.
While Kaitlyn was able to open up and reflect during the funeral, the family discusses the benefits of talking to a therapist in the future. As we first told you, Mama June now has custody of Kaitlyn.
Our sources say Kaitlyn was very involved in Anna’s battle with cancer, making sure her mother took her medications and staying by her side throughout the process. So there’s a lot to unpack.
Anna’s youngest daughter is 8 years old Kyleewho now lives with her biological father, Michael.
Because of Kylee’s age, we’re told it’s harder for her to understand her mother’s death… and she has leaned on her friends for support and returned to school on Friday, which the family considers a good sign. The school was having a field trip, we’re told, and the family thought it was a good time for Kylee to go back.
It’s unclear if Kylee’s dad will get her in a room with a therapist, but we’re told the family wants her to at least have someone to talk to.
Meanwhile, we’re told the sisters called each other and mourned together.
