Jade Goody Prepares Sons for her Death with Children's Book


Los Angeles, Feb 26: Terminally ill reality TV star Jade Goody is preparing her two sons for her inevitable death by reading them from a children's book that revolves around the theme of death.

The book "Badger's Parting Gifts" tells the story of a group of friends who learn the lesson of life from the death of their pet, a wise old badger.

The tale sees the dying old badger leave his friends a poignant farewell note, as well as the memory of how he touched their lives.

The book was given to Goody by hospital staff so that she could explain the phenomenon of death to her two young sons -- five-year-old Bobby-Jack and four-year-old Freddy.

"It explains about heaven and where people go. I have been reading that to them. But I think my boys know now that I'm dying. Yeah, I think they do now," said the former 'Big Brother' star during an interview with OK magazine.

Goody is now preparing to christen her two children so that she could stay in touch with them even after her death. She plans to say a heart-rending final goodbye to Bobby-Jack and Freddy before sending them away with their father Jeff Brazier so they do not see her last days.

    Very sad situation.Children have a different concept of death. They think that death is a temporary separation. Even when others cry, children will be looking at them with puzled look in their eyes trying to make sense of it all.Death is a finality, the greatest equaliser ever known inthis world to man kind. It does not discriminate between the rich and the poor. It knows no religion or region. It is that terminal event where we all end up one day or the other.

    Each day we get closer there. Yet we tend to fight with each other and show anger, irritation, hatred towards others. The lady in question is no exception. I guess none of us really are.The children will not have a mother. That is a void nbo one else can fill for those two.I hope Jade Goody will make peace with all those who mattered to her and depart this world to meet her creator with no sense of regret. MAY GOD BLESS HER AND TAKE CARE OF HER.
