Several months after Kellie Pickler's husband Kyle Jacobs took his own life, the singer has broken her silence on the tragedy.
"One of the most beautiful lessons my husband taught me was in a moment of a crisis, if you don’t know what to do, ‘do nothing, just be still,'" the American Idol alum began her public message. "I have chosen to heed his advice."
"Thank you to my family, friends, and supporters, for the countless letters, calls, and messages that you have sent my way. It has truly touched my soul and it’s helping me get through the darkest time in my life," continued the country crooner. "As many of you have told me, you are all in my prayers."
Pickler concluded her sentiment by sharing, "I am planning an intimate memorial for my husband, which will happen later this fall, that is what Kyle would have wanted."
As OK! reported, a May autopsy confirmed the songwriter, 47, died by suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Friday, February 17. The document stated the bullet entered through his mouth.
No drugs were found in his system, though it was reported that he had "a history of pseudoseizures, gastrointestinal bleeding, elevated liver enzymes and chronic alcohol use."
The blonde beauty, 37, was the one to find his body in a bedroom at their Nashville home.
