Mama June Shannon says living in the Georgia home where her daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell died is a “constant” reminder of the family’s loss.

“We're hoping to be able to move soon because Anna passed away in our home, and for me and Justin and Kaitlyn it's just a constant remembering,” the Mama June: Family Crisis star, 44, tells PEOPLE.

PEOPLE confirmed in March 2023 that Anna had been diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma two months earlier. She died at age 28 the following December.

Cardwell’s daughter Kaitlyn, 11, now lives with Shannon and her husband Justin Stroud. Shannon confirmed to PEOPLE in March that Cardwell’s other daughter, 8-year-old Kylee, was living with her biological father, Anna’s ex-husband Michael Cardwell.

“This is where everything happened,” Shannon continues. “We are living in a constant nightmare, but for me, for the last six months, it's been a struggle. I got emotional earlier today.”

“It is just really, am I going to wake up from this nightmare?” she adds.

Shannon's second oldest daughter, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, 27,  also weighed in, telling PEOPLE, “I think it's kind of like that for all of us.

“There's moments that I do feel sad,” Jessica said. “Anna wasn't a really emotional person, but for me, it is just trying to remember her in all the good ways. I want to try to erase all of the bad couple of days.”

Shannon said parenting Kaitlyn also evokes memories of her late daughter.

"Kaitlyn is Anna's twin through and through," said the mom of four, who also has daughters Lauryn "Pumpkin" Efird, 24, and Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Shannon, 18. "She reminds me constantly of Anna. The way Anna was at 11, Kaitlyn is."

"The way that Anna was growing up. I mean, again, looking at Kaitlyn sometimes, it's not difficult. I wouldn't say it was difficult, but it is kind of like, 'You look like your mama,'" she continued.

"It's just things like that. I'll catch myself or she'll do something like Anna would've done. I'll be like, 'You act just like your mama.' She's like, 'No I don't. I act like Kaitlyn.' And I was like, 'No, you are still.'"
