Tom Parker ‘s wife Kelsey has taken to Instagram to thank fans for their support after the death of her husband.
Kelsey said that she’s so grateful for the support as she continues to go through the “most difficult time” of her life.
The Wanted’s Tom Parker sadly passed away last month aged just 33 after a brave battle with brain cancer.
Taking to Instagram to thank fans and provide an update on Tom’s funeral, Kelsey wrote: “Thank you for all of your love and support. It truly is getting us as a family, through the most difficult time.
“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.”
This comes days after the mum-of-two revealed Tom’s funeral will take place on April 20 in a private ceremony.
She has encouraged fans of the singer to “line the streets” at Queensway, Petts Wood, in London.
The young singer’s passing came after a battle with stage four glioblastoma.
He had been receiving treatment after doctors discovered he had a brain tumour in 2020, when he was told that it was inoperable and that he would only have 12-18 months to live.
The news was announced last week when Tom’s wife Kelsey took to social media to share a sweet photo and moving caption.
Kelsey penned: “It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm Tom passed away peacefully earlier today with all of his family by his side.
“Our hearts are broken, Tom was the centre of our world and we can’t imagine life without his infectious smile and energetic presence.
“We are truly thankful for the outpouring of love and support and ask that we all unite to ensure Tom’s light continues to shine for his beautiful children.”
She then added: “Thank you to everyone who has supported in his care throughout, he fought until the very end. I’m forever proud of you.”
A few days after his passing she shared an update for fans, and thanked them for all of the messages.
Posting a throwback snap with her husband she penned: “Words can’t express how much all of your love and support means right now.
“We are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity.
“We have set up a donations page for those of you wishing to donate in Tom’s memory.
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
Tom married Kelsey Hardwick in 2018, with their first child, a daughter born in July 2019.
The couple welcomed their son in October 2020.
