Jade Goodys mum: My beautiful girl has goneMarch 23rd, 2009 - 12:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, March 23 (ANI): Jade Goodys mum Jackiey Budden held on to her daughters hand who passed away peacefully in her sleep, and in a sad moment said: Goodbye, my darling.
Jade lost her battle to cervical cancer on March 22 - Mothers Day and got her last wish to spend her final days at her home in Essex with her family, new husband Jack Tweed and sons, Bobby, five, and Freddy, four.
Both Jackiey and Jack, along with her friend and personal trainer Kevin Adams, were by the 27-year-olds bedside when her end came.
My beautiful girl has gone. My beautiful daughter is at peace the Sun quoted Jackiey as saying.
Describing Jades final moments, a pal said: It was very calm and very beautiful. Poor Jade was in a coma-like state for at least 24 hours.
The friend added: She would sleep for hours then stir and come round slightly. She was too weak to talk. The doctor had given her a lot of morphine because she was obviously in incredible pain.
The Brit reality TV star was diagnosed with the disease last August, and was told that it had spread to her entire body.
Jade died as she lived, in the public eye. Its very sad. We got very close. She was a 27-year-old facing up to terminal cancer and securing the future of her kids. Jade has been so brave, Goodys publicist Max Clifford said.
She died having been in a deep sleep for the past 24 hours. Its ironic she died on Mothers Day. She was such a good mum.
I think shes going to be remembered as a young girl who has, and who will, save an awful lot of lives.
And she faced her death in the way she faced her whole life full on, with a lot of courage, Clifford added. (ANI)
