Kellie Pickler Reflects on Husband Kyle Jacobs for First Time Since Death

Kyle Jacobs, Kellie Pickler's spouse, was found dead in what appears to be a suicide in February. 

He was 49 years old. Pickler has been grieving in private for the past few months. 

 In her first public comment since the passing of the country music songwriter, sent to People on Thursday, 

the singer reflected on a piece of advice that Jacobs often gave her."In times of stress, 

one of the most wonderful things my spouse has ever taught me is to 'do nothing, just be still.' The counsel he gave me, I've decided to take," Pickler said.

She continued, "I am planning an intimate memorial for my husband, which will happen later this fall, 

that is what Kyle would have wanted." This was the first indication that the singer was preparing a memorial service for Jacobs.

On the afternoon of February 17, Pickler's personal aide called the police from the couple's home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ali Landry moved on quickly after her brief marriage to Mario Lopez.
