‘Never a moment goes by where Jaimi is not thought about. Our beautiful girl who loved flowers for any occasion, in fact… there really didn’t need to be an occasion because flowers just brightened up her day.. any day,’ she wrote in the post.
‘5 months have passed but she’s never forgotten…. ever,’ she added.
She encouraged her followers to ‘tell people you love that you love them, hold them tight, give them a hand written hand made card … and if no one buys you flowers, go and buy some for yourself. Love yourself, be kind to yourself.’
