Ashley with her mom

Naomi, 76, was found dead by Ashley in April, who later revealed that her mom died from a self-inflicted firearm wound.

"She used a weapon. My mother used a firearm," Ashley heartbreakingly told GMA. "So that's the piece of information we are very uncomfortable sharing."

Speaking of Naomi's struggles with her mental health, Ashley added: "Mom was a brilliant conversationalist. She was a star. She was an underrated songwriter, and she was someone who suffered from mental illness and had trouble getting off the sofa.

"She was very isolated in many ways because of the disease, and yet there were a lot of people who showed up for her over the 2years. Not just me."
