During the ceremony to celebrate the induction of the iconic mother-daughter duo into Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday, Wynonna accepted the honor on behalf of herself and her mother and gave a tearful but composed speech. "I'm gonna make this fast because my heart's broken — and I feel so blessed," she told the 800 people gathered in Nashville's CMA Theater for the ceremony. "I mean, it's a very strange dynamic to be this broken and this blessed." On Saturday, Wynonna and Ashley announced their mother's death in an emotional statement obtained by PEOPLE. "Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness. We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public," the statement read. "We are in unknown territory."

No additional information will be released at this time." Prior to her death, Naomi and Wynonna announced their first tour in over a decade, titled The Final Tour. The nearly sold-out 10-date arena tour was set to kick off on Sept. 30 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and would conclude in Nashville on Oct. 28. A source told PEOPLE the family has now planned to discuss the fate of the scheduled fall tour. "The family is meeting this week to talk about the state of the upcoming tour to see how and if it can proceed in an obviously different incarnation," the insider shared. "They want to be respectful and representative of their legacy, but more importantly as to what Naomi would have wanted for her family and fans."
