Country singer Naomi Judd died on April 30 and her public memorial is Sunday, May 15 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. Ahead of that celebration of her life, former “Dancing With the Stars” and “Hollywood Squares” host Tom Bergeron sent a message to Naomi’s daughters, actress Ashley Judd and singer Wynonna Judd, who competed on season 16 of the dancing competition series.

Bergeron Said Naomi Judd Was Full of ‘Sweet Generosity’

“I’ll always remember your mom,
@AshleyJudd, for her sweet generosity. Between taping ‘Hollywood Squares,’ I told her of a family member who, like her, contracted hep C. She immediately offered to call them and offer support, which she later did,” wrote Bergeron.

During the interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Ashley said that her mother was experiencing a “catastrophe” going on inside her.

“My mother knew that she was seen and she was heard in her anguish … and she was walked home. Our mother couldn’t hang on to be recognized by her peers. That is the level of catastrophe of what was going on inside of her. Because the barrier between the regard in which they held her couldn’t penetrate into her heart and the lie the disease told her was so convincing,” said the actress.

Naomi previously spoke to “Today” about her struggles, telling the morning show in 2017, “I didn’t get off my couch for two years. I was so depressed that I couldn’t move … My husband (Larry Strickland) and my girlfriends and Ashley would come over and I would just go upstairs and lock the door to my bedroom … You become immobilized.”

She added, “We don’t make enough of the good neurochemicals in the brain. It’s a disease. It has nothing to do with our character … I was dangerously depressed.”

She also told “Today” that she had considered suicide.

“That’s how bad it can get,” she said. “It’s hard to describe. You go down in this deep, dark hole of depression and you don’t think that there’s another minute.'”

On Sunday, May 15, CMT is airing Naomi Judd’s public memorial without commercial interruption. The special will include “tributes from Wynonna & Ashley Judd with soon-to-be-announced performances and special appearances from some of the biggest names in entertainment,” according to the CMT press release.

“We are sincerely privileged to work alongside Wynonna, Ashley, and [Naomi’s husband] Larry to present this live celebration of life for their mother and wife Naomi.

Nottingham Forest 1 Sheffield United 2 (3-2 on pens): Brice Samba saves THREE penalties to send Forest to Wembley

NOTTINGHAM FOREST survived a stunning second-half Sheffield United comeback to seal a place in the Championship play-off final on penalties.

The hosts got off to the perfect start when goal machine Brennan Johnson scored the opening goal with less than 20 minutes on the clock, slamming home a Sam Surridge cross.

But after tempers flared shortly before half-time between Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom and Forest stars Johnson and Djed Spence, the visitors came out for the second period a different animal.

Morgan Gibbs-White pulled one back two minutes after the break, stabbing home a Sander Berge cross from close range.

And John Fleck levelled things up on aggregate with 15 minutes left to play, scoring in almost identical style.

Neither side could force a winner in normal, so on it went for another half an hour.
