London, April 5 (ANI): Jack Tweed paid a personal tribute to his late wife Jade Goody with a touching ode at her funeral on April 4.
Tweed moved the mourners present around Essex’s St John the Baptist church to tears with his ode ‘If Only’.
The 21-year-old, who lost his wife to cervical cancer on March 22, expressed his grief at the loss of his better half in his own verse.
“My life will never be the same without you by my side,” the Sun quoted him as saying in one of his lines.
The late Brit reality TV star was buried at Epping Forest Burial Park in North Weald.
Her spokesman Max Clifford dubbed the mum-of-two as ‘Essex Queen’ and hailed her efforts in encouraging women to go for regular screenings for the disease.
He said: “She achieved in seven months what doctors, politicians and medical experts can only dream of achieving.
“Her legacy is a wonderful one. Because of Jade Goody, lots of women have had their lives saved.” (ANI)
