It was a life cut too short, and thousands of fans gathered outside an English Church in London to pay their final respects to reality show star Jade Goody on Saturday.
Her casket began its journey in Bermondsey, South London, at about 8.30 a.m., with the procession crossing historic Tower Bridge before heading north to her home of Upshire, Essex, reports People magazine.
Her husband, Jack Tweed was one of six pallbearers carrying the white coffin into St John's Church in Buckhurst Hill, Essex.
During the ceremony he recited a poem he had written for his late wife. "My life will never be the same without you by my side," it read. "Grief almost too much to bear and difficult to hide."
Jade passed away on March 22 after a short battle with cervical cancer. She was 27. A cancer diary she has called A Love Letter will be published this coming spring. She wrote the diary for her sons. Rest in peace Jade.
