Jade Goody wrote a moving message to her sons Bobby, five and Freddy, four entitled 'Remember Me This Way', which is included in a special picture book she compiled for them
Jade Goody left her sons a poignant message in a special picture book she created for them.
The reality TV star - who lost her battle with cervical cancer earlier this month aged 27 - filled a special tome with pictures of her life with Bobby, five and Freddy, four so they never forget her.
The book's foreward, entitled 'Remember Me This Way', says: "To Bobby and Freddy - I have asked for this book so that when you are older you can remember just how much fun we had together.
"I thank God that we made the most of all our time together and I treasure the moments we shared.
"I know that with the help of nanny Jackiey, Jack and daddy Jeff you will turn into fine, upstanding young men. We had so many wonderful adventures together, from horse-riding and fishing in Wales to camel rides in the desert of Abu Dhabi and water fights at Butlins.
"These are my most precious memories, and this book will be your keepsake so that you will always remember the good times.
"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."
The book will also be sold to the public with all money raised going to the cancer charity which helped care for Jade.
The pictures - which include shots of Jade and her sons on camels and riding horses - were taken by Jade's friends Danny Hayward and Simon Bridger.
The pair began photographing Jade shortly after she came out of the 'Big Brother' house in 2002 and soon became close friends with her.
They are joint trustees of her estate, became her godfathers when she was christened and were best men at her wedding to Jack Tweed in February.
Meanwhile, Jack - whose friends took him to Thorpe Park amusement park yesterday (31.03.09) in an effort to cheer him up - has revealed Jade kept her sense of humour right up until her death.
When Jack became worried Jade might not be able to recognise her sons when she looked at pictures of them, he told Britain's OK! magazine she fired back: "You, Bobby, Freddy, me. I'd not a f***ing idiot, Jack!"
Jack added: "So she was still having a go at me right until the end, but that made me happy, because that was Jade being Jade."
