Jade Goody wants to be buried with a selection of her favourite photographs from her holiday in January
Jade Goody has chosen a selection of photographs she wants to be buried with.
The dying reality TV star is taking comfort in pictures of her, mum Jackiey Budden and sons Bobby, five and Freddie, four, on holiday this January and wants them placed in her coffin.
A source said: "The pictures make Jade feel close to the boys, as she knows she isn't likely to see them again."
Jackiey - who yesterday (18.03.09) left Jade's Essex home in tears - said the holiday was Jade's happiest time since she was diagnosed with cervical cancer last year.
She said: "Jade was so relaxed in the sea. It helped all the pain in her joints and uplifted her. We all had a lovely time."
Although Jade, 27, is now too ill for Bobby and Freddie to visit, they have been spending time at their father Jeff Brazier's house making Mother's Day cards.
An insider said: "Jade has explained to them she is very sick and is going to live in heaven. They realise something isn't right and want her to know how much she means to them."
Jade - who is now believed to have only hours left to live - is too sick for any visitors other than Jackiey, 50, and husband Jack Tweed. A prayer group arrived at her home yesterday to "lay their hands" on her but were turned away.
The five - including a pastor - claimed to have had a premonition that Jade would pull through, but a family friend told them: "It is very kind of you to offer up your prayers, but this is not the right way to do it.
"Please go back to your church and pray there instead."
Meanwhile, celebrity magazine OK! - which paid £700, 000 for the rights to Jade and Jack's recent wedding - have been blasted for publishing a 'tribute issue' to the star on Tuesday (17.03.09).
The black-bordered cover of the magazine reads '1981-2009' and carries the words 'in loving memory', implying Jade is already dead.
Although furious fans have called for a boycott of the issue - which claims to carry her 'last words' - and the publication's editor to be sacked, the issue reportedly has the support of Jade's family.
A magazine spokesperson said: "OK!'s tribute issue is a celebration of Jade's amazing life."
