Friends and family of singer/songwriter Kyle Jacobs gathered to honor his life at Franklin First UMC in Franklin, Tennessee on Monday (September 25th).
The late musician – who was married to Kellie Pickler – died by suicide in February at the age of 49.
Jacobs’ family said in a statement provided to People Wednesday (September 27th), "While this celebration was long in coming, it was necessary for us, his parents, to cope with the shock of his passing, and to work through adjusting to this life without our beloved son. Thus, Kyle’s Celebration of Life was created and presented in a thoughtful and thorough way to best honor how Kyle lived his life.”
The outlet reports that per the celebration’s recording, Pickler did not appear to take part in the memorial.
The "100 Proof" singer first broke her silence on her husband’s death in August, telling People, “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. I have chosen to heed his advice.”
