Jade Goody's husband and mother paid their final visits to her body yesterday (01.04.09) ahead of Saturday's (04.04.09) funeral service
Jack Tweed broke down after paying a final visit to deceased wife Jade Goody yesterday (01.04.09).
The 21-year-old spent 15 minutes alone at the funeral parlour saying a final goodbye to the reality TV star - who lost her battle with cervical cancer last month - ahead of her public funeral this Saturday (04.04.09). He was also moved to tears by floral tributes outside the building.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "He asked to have some time alone with Jade. He wanted to say goodbye."
Earlier in the day, Jade's mother, Jackiey Budden, had also visited the resting place in Rotherhithe, south London, and was in floods of tears at the hundreds of bouquets of flowers left for the former reality TV star.
Funeral directors F.A. Albin and Sons have pledged to donate the £25,000 fee for their services to a trust fund set up for Jade's sons Bobby, five and four-year-old Freddy.
Saying they were "privileged" to be looking after the service, the firm has also promised to make a donation to a cervical cancer charity.
In addition, more money will be raised for cancer causes by the sale of special commemorative candles.
The £20 and £4.99 tributes carry an image of Jade's face with the words "Jade - an ordinary woman, an extraordinary life" emblazoned on them, and a portion of money raised will be donated.
Further details of the service have been revealed, with plans for balloons and white doves to be released to commemorate the former 'Big Brother' star's life.
One car in the cortege will contain 30 balloons - 28 for friends and family and two for Bobby and Freddy.
Another Daimler will contain 28 white doves - 27 to represent the years Jade lived and one for Jack to release at the burial.
Jade's grandparents will accompany her body from the chapel of rest. Following the public service the family will attend a private burial.
