Jade Goody sent a heartbreaking final message to sons Bobby and Freddie Brazier before she tragically passed away.
Before she died, Jade sent her two sons one last message attached to a photo album of her life.
It read: "Dear Bobby and Freddie - I have asked for this book to be made so that when you are older you can remember just how much fun we had.
"I thank God that we made the most of our time together and I treasure the moments we shared."
The heartfelt message continued: "These are my most precious memories. Some person much wiser than me once said that if you never discovered something you would die for, then you haven't lived. Well, you are both proof that I have lived.
"I will love you always. Mummy."
Eldest son Bobby was just five-years-old when his mum passed away and has since made a successful career in TV, having recently won a National TV Award for playing the role of Freddie Slater in EastEnders.
In an interview with The Times earlier this year, he was asked if he remembered much about his mum.
"Not a whole lot," he replied.
"Maybe memories of memories. I’m always being told about her and what she meant to people. I guess I know my mum through other people’s memories of my mum."
Bobby, who is is now competing on Strictly Come Dancing, agreed that Goody had an 'excellent personality', adding: "Thanks, Mum, for giving me your amazing personality and your beautiful face."
In a previous interview with The Face, when asked if he missed her, Bobby said: "I don’t. Because I don’t feel like I was with her long enough to miss her."
He went on: "I feel like it’s unfair. I miss what could’ve been. I hear all the time she was such a presence, that she was one of a kind. What hurts most is that it wasn’t just losing anyone, it was losing Jade."
Bobby said he would have just 'loved to have seen what other people had seen'.
"I’m always being told that she’s a hero and that she was funny and that people see me in her on a daily basis, which is nice," he said.
"I’m lucky that [her life was] kind of public, because it means that I can watch videos when I’m feeling strong enough to watch videos. But sometimes I can’t. I will cry if I do."
