Tom Parker's wife Kelsey thanks fans for helping her through 'most difficult time' following his death

TOM Parker's wife Kelsey thanked fans for helping her through the "'most difficult time" following on from his death.

The singer sadly died on March 30 at the age of 33 after a brave battle with brain cancer.


Kelsey recently took to Instagram to share her appreciation for all the love and support she's received over the weeks.

"Thank you for all of your love and support. It truly is getting us as a family, through the most difficult time," she wrote on her Instagram Story.

Earlier this week the mum-of-two revealed that Tom will be laid to rest on April 20 in a private ceremony, but his fans have been invited to pay their respects at Queensway, Petts Wood, in south-east London.

Kelsey added in the post: "I politely request that no flowers are sent to the church as we are doing flowers as a family. If you wish to pay your requests please line the streets for Tom.

"Also I know my husband would want to raise as much money as possible, so that moving forward I can help others and raise as much awareness of this terrible disease. 

"Therefore any donations would be wonderful and help greatly. Thank you again.

"Love always, the Positive Parkers."

It comes after Kelsey shared a heartwarming photo of their daughter and said her dad had come to "see them".

She posted a photo of daughter Aurelia holding a white feather and captioned it: "He came to see them at work."

The youngster held the feather in her hand and held it up as she looked at it inquisitively.

Kelsey also created a GoFundMe page following her husband's death to "keep Tom's memory alive forever" via donations to charitable causes instead of sending flowers and cards.

The page exceeded its £5,000 target within the first 12 hours and so far has received more than £51,000 worth of donations.

The couple had been married since 2018 and welcomed their son, Bodhi, in October last year and their daughter, Aurelia Rose, was born in 2019.

Tom disclosed in October 2020 that he had been diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma and had begun radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
