Jade Goody’s widower Jack Tweed marks 13 years since her tragic death with loving tribute
Jade Goody’s widower Jack Tweed posted a series of photos in tribute to his late wife to commemorate the 13th anniversary of her tragic death.
The 34 year old remembered Jade in a sweet caption as he shared personal pictures of himself with the reality star, who passed away from cervical cancer in 2009 at the age of 27.
In the first of the photos Jack uploaded to Instagram Stories on Tuesday, he was seen dressed in a blue suit on his wedding day with Jade, who was captured in her stunning white wedding dress, as the pair exchanged rings.
"13 years since I last got to see this angel," he wrote emotionally over the picture.
"Miss you every day #raiseawareness #smeartest”.
Jack was 21 years old at the time he married Jade, who sadly died days after their wedding day.
The Big Brother star was diagnosed with cervical cancer only seven months prior, succumbing to the illness publicly in effort to raise awareness of the disease and urge for earlier smear testing in the UK.
Jade left behind her two young sons Bobby and Freddy, who have been raised by their father Jeff Brazier since her passing.
Jack posted a second photo on Instagram Stories of himself with Jade at an event, pictured in happy spirits as she wore a white dress.
“Always smiling,” the widower captioned the picture.
The last photo he shared was a sweet shot of himself kissing Jade as they were photographed walking the London streets holding onto several Selfridges shopping bags.
Jack opened up last year about how he still “struggles to live without Jade” as he told The Sun: “I didn't know how to deal with it when I was young. I didn't know what else to do.
“All I could think about was how depressed I was and I would just sit there and just constantly think about Jade. So, I’d just have a drink every day, it would go from there.
“Then I’d get pictured having a drink and people would think I don't care about anything."
Jack confessed to sitting at home and crying thinking about Jade and turning to “drink[ing] vodka” when he couldn’t bear it any longer.
“I wish I didn't do that and I wish I dealt with it a different way,” he continued.
“I went through a stage where I got really, really depressed. I was just blocking everything. I got to the stage where I just didn't know what to do with my life and I went to see my mum.
“I sat down with my mum crying, thinking I just didn't want to be here anymore. I just wanted everything to end.”
Thankfully, Jack said his mum convinced him to go on antidepressant medication which bettered his outlook on life.
