Mama June Shannon is mourning the loss of her oldest daughter Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, and inviting fans to pay their respects before her funeral later this week.

Shannon, 44, announced Cardwell’s death on Instagram on Sunday. In a TikTok video posted Monday, she revealed that the family will be holding visiting hours for the 29-year-old on Wednesday at Williams White-Columns Funeral Home in Gordon, Georgia.

Cardwell, who appeared alongside her mom and sister Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson in TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, died 11 months after being diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma.

“I know a look a hot mess, but my mind is so emotionally and mentally mindf---ed right now,” Shannon told her followers.

The Mama June: Family in Crisis star also detailed how things have felt different around the house since Cardwell’s death.

“It’s so quiet in here, the machines aren’t running,” Shannon said. “She’s not sitting in here watching cooking shows and it’s just so quiet. The chair that she was in, you know, nobody is sitting in it right now because it has a blanket and a pillow that she used and that’s where she passed away at.”

Shannon added that she didn’t know “how to describe the pain” she felt in the wake of her daughter’s death, but she insisted that Cardwell would want her fans to be part of the grieving process.

“Anna wouldn’t have it any other way, any other way, but for me to let ya’ll know,” the mother of four continued. “So ya’ll, the fans, can say goodbye to her, we decided as a family, ‘cause she wanted us to go live here on TikTok, on social media, but we’re not doing that.”

The visitation hour will proceed what Shannon described as a “short but amazing service” honoring Cardwell, who was a mom to daughters Kaitlyn Elizabeth, born in 2012, and Kylee Madison, born in 2015.

“We’re doing something for her which is going to be the Tina dance with her as one of her last things,” Shannon said, referring to the signature moves of Bob’s Burgers character Tina Belcher. “As ya’ll know, that bitch loved to do the Tina dance for ya’ll on the couch — no, sorry, on the bed. So many times, ya’ll loved that. And when she actually was down and about, she couldn’t do it any more after chemo, ya’ll missed that.”

Shannon then asked fans to help get Cardwell’s account reach 1 million followers before Wednesday.

“Let’s throw Anna out with a f---ing bang, baby, before Wednesday,” she said, noting that she felt like Cardwell supported that goal. “I’m getting chills right now because Anna’s sitting right here f---ing beside me and tell me, ‘Mama, let’s go!’"
