Gidward They opened up to the last moments of their mother’s life as she lost her battle with cancer.
Twins 28-year-old John and Edward Grimes reveal that they hold their mother’s hand in their dying moments.
The sad duo said that from that moment on they felt “disconnected” from the world, because it was she who kept them “grounded”.
They said that in her final days, she was listening to Fleetwood Mac before she finally gave up in her five-year battle with leukemia.
John and Edward opened up to Ryan Tobredi on The Late Late Show, telling him what their mother would miss in their lives, in an interview that showed their devastation upon her death.
Edward said, “We were there when she passed away and we are grateful we were there – we managed to hold her hand.
“We had some headphones listening to some music. We listened to some Fleetwood Mac songs and some of her favorite songs that she liked to play.”
John added: “It is very frustrating to think that she will not be at our weddings, nor will she be there when our children are born, but we always keep her spirit alive like taking pictures of her and telling stories.
“You just feel so disconnected from the world because the person who kept you entrenched in the world and gave birth to you is gone, and now you don’t know where to be and what to do.
Jedward also performed an emotional show for Everybody Hurts by REM, which they dedicated to their mom and left viewers at home in tears.
Their mother, Susanna, passed away in February 2019, five years after she was diagnosed with leukemia and kidney failure.
Two months after her death, Edward had opened up to the loose woman.
Speaking in April 2019, he said:[The cancer] It’s been going on for the past five years, and now I feel like my mom has passed, it looks very weird, because it’s all we knew. We want to call her and there is no one to call her.
“Her opinion means everything to us, she was always there to support us. We never really talked about it was really closed doors.”
