“I know that Anna’s biggest fear is going to sleep at night and passing away in her sleep,” Mama June told cameras. She said that she and Justin Stroud stayed with Anna past midnight so she would not be alone. All night long, Anna called her, “panicking, messaging the doctors. She hadn’t slept in days.”

“[Her husband] Eldridge brought her to my house at like, three o’clock this morning with her and the girls,” June said. “She wanted me first thing this morning to call hospice, and that’s what I did.”
