Lisa Curry is remembering her late daughter, Jaimi Kenny, on what would’ve been her 34th birthday.
The former Olympian paid tribute to Jaimi in a heartfelt Instagram post, which comes nine months after she sadly passed away.
“Our beautiful Jaimi, born at 9.03am, 34 years ago,” Lisa began in her tribute shared on June 25, Jamie’s first birthday since her death.
“Today is a hard day. I can’t even explain how I feel. I have no words. Happy birthday Jaimi. We all miss you and love you greatly.🥰❤️😍😞🌸👼 #rememberingjaimi.”
The gold medallist accompanied her post with a series of throwback photos featuring Jaimi. In the first photo, the proud mum cradles her baby daughter, and the follow-up images are happy snaps of Jaimi growing up.
Nine months may have passed since Jaimi passed away aged 33 following a private, long-term battle with an undisclosed illness, but she is never far from her mother’s mind.
“It’s been a long, hard road for our family. Actually, it’s been a really s—-y year,” she wrote. “Analysing the constant thoughts of losing our most precious firstborn, our Jaimi, has been sad and exhausting. It’s overwhelming. It’s never-ending.”
Lisa has also regularly shared updates on how she’s coping with losing her daughter on Instagram. In a recent post, she admitted that she is still struggling to come to terms with grief.
“Our Jaimi, My brain has thoughts and conversations that my mouth can’t say,” she wrote in April. “It’s hard to talk about the pain and fear that is felt daily…life goes on,” she wrote alongside a sweet selfie with her daughter.”
