Jackiey, Jeff and the burden of grief

I can’t – and don’t want to – imagine what it must be like to know your child is terminally ill, and to watch them lose their life. People deal with grief in all different ways, and in my opinion, as long as she’s not hurting anyone else, Jackiey Budden should be left alone to cope with the loss of her daughter and the anniversary of her death in any way she chooses. Meanwhile, if you saw last night’s incredibly moving documentary about Jade, you would have seen her ex, Jeff Brazier, speak movingly about how he is making the best possible life for the boys. He has chosen to remove them from the public eye, he is clearly a sensitive and devoted dad and frankly he moved me to tears. written by Liz Jarvis
