Elton John Bids Farewell To His Mother

Elton John’s mother Sheila Farebrother passed away unexpectedly last month, and the legendary singer shared his final goodbye to her in a touching Instagram post.

”Today’s funeral was perfect,” John wrote.  “Having the service in the family chapel and attended by your brother and sister brought us all comfort. Having the service where Nan lived out her final days brought you and your Mother back together again. Tomorrow your friends will gather separately to say their goodbyes. I’ve chosen all the music so everything will be just right. Thank-you for bringing me into the world and for all that you have done for me.  Love, Elton #RIP

Dear Mum, Today's funeral was perfect. Having the service in the family chapel and attended by your brother and sister brought us all comfort. Having the service where Nan lived out her final days brought you and your Mother back together again. Tomorrow your friends will gather separately to say their good byes. I've chosen all the music so everything will be just right. Thank-you for bringing me into the world and for all that you have done for me. Love, Elton #RIP
