Woman's inspirational final Facebook post goes viral after death
After battling breast cancer for six long years, Seema Jaya Sharma passed away on Friday, August 21.
But Seema made sure she bid farewell to the world on a positive note.
Her inspirational message has gone viral after being shared on Facebook a few hours after her death.
The 37-year-old, who lived in the UK's Ilford, Redbridge in Essex, had her child posthumously post the message from her account, and it's been shared more than 800 times since then.
The poster pre-faced the model and singer's final message with: "My mum passed away today at 14:10.
"She wrote this as her final status... she wanted her last words to be 'I got 21seconds to go!!! hehe," a reference to the single '21 Seconds' by So Solid Crew.
Seema's message read: "My son will keep you updated of when the funeral is etc and please come in bright colours coz you're not coming to mourn my death but to celebrate my life!!
"Please keep me alive through you good times and every time you laugh or smile and have fun, I'm right there having fun with u!!! YAY!!!
"Don't cry for me Argentina…. the truth is that I didn't even know where u are on the map!! Geography was never my strong point!!
"Anyway this is me saying 'peace out people'."
This post was followed by an update about her funeral, which will be held on Friday, August 28, at the South Chapel, City Of London Crematorium, Aldersbrook Road, Manor Park, London, E12 5DQ at 13:15pm.
Jaya, who was also a singer, became the face of Cancer Research, UK.
