Lisa Curry pens gut-wrenching tribute to her late daughter Jaimi

Lisa Curry and her son Jett Kenny have shared their pain a day after burying their daughter and sister Jaimi Kenny following a years-long battle with an eating disorder and alcoholism.

Jaimi died at Sunshine Coast University Hospital last Monday morning surrounded by her family, including both her Olympian mother and Ironman father Grant Kenny.

Poignant tributes shared on Instagram on Sunday morning were a final goodbye to the beloved 33-year-old from a family who still can't believe she is gone.

'Yesterday, as the sun was setting, we said goodbye to you, our Jaimi,' Curry wrote of the 100-person funeral at Sunshine Coast Chapel on Saturday.

'As the last sun rays filtered through the trees onto you, fairy lights flickering everywhere around, with the most divine flowers surrounding you, and a room full of unconditional love, we farewelled you... always our bubba.

'It was just perfect... beautiful, quiet, pretty and sparkly... just the way you would have wanted it.'

Curry alluded to her daughter's heartbreaking battle with the demons that led to her death - that at least now they would haunt her no more.

'Our little angel, you can now rest peacefully. Free of pain, free to flourish and free to grow, free to just be,' she wrote.

'Jaimi, as dad and I lovingly held you when you took your first breath, we lovingly held you as you took your last. Goodnight sweet girl... we hope you have a nice long sleep.'

'You were there whenever I needed you, you taught me how to cook gourmet food like roast potatoes, chicken and salad, and tacos - the essentials in our household,' he wrote.

'You gave me a slight insight into by dressing me in up in and putting makeup on me when I was young. You’d sit behind me while I ate dinner and would pick at anything pimple looking on my back - even if it was just a mole.

'You were my second mother, you were my biggest sister, you were my friend, and you were a fighter until the very end.

'Jaimi, I will love you forever and you will always have a place in my heart. I will miss you dearly, but cherish the moments we had together greatly. I love you so much, and I will see you again at some point.'

Jett also reflected on the funeral, thanking the people who were able to attend and those who couldn't due to Queensland's gathering limit due to coronavirus.

'Yesterday we said our final goodbyes to my beautiful sister and I would just like to thank everyone for your overwhelming love and support,' he wrote.

'The entire family was inundated with loving messages, flowers and thoughts for our beautiful Jaimi. I personally will never be able to thank everyone enough. But do know that it will never be forgotten.'

Dozens of devastated family and friends had gathered for the funeral on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday afternoon, after the tight-knit clan spent almost a week grieving the loss of the 'bright, bubbly' Jaimi.

After almost two hours, guests began filling out of the Sunshine Coast Chapel. Lisa could be seen bursting into tears as her husband Mark Tabone, family members and friends, all tried to comfort her.

Those in attendance congregated out the front of the church, tearfully exchanging hugs before Jaimi's immediate family followed them out of the service.

Jett, sister Morgan and their devastated parents embraced as Jaimi's white coffin, covered in pink and orange dahlias and baby's breath, was placed in the back of the hearse and carried away. 

The heart-wrenching final goodbye was made all the more difficult with only 100 family and friends allowed to attend under Queensland coronavirus restrictions.

Earlier on Saturday, as the service got underway, swathes of brightly dressed mourners arrived at the Maroochydore funeral home wearing floral patterns.

They gathered out the front of the venue from about 3.30pm, chatting quietly among themselves until the Curry-Kenny clan arrived. 

Jett donned a slick, grey suit and dark tinted sunglasses when he stepped out of a car alongside his Ironman father about 4pm. 

The pair supported one another as they made their way through the crowd of friends and family. 

A lone man playing a somber melody on the bagpipes eventually greeted guests, instructing them to make their way into the church for the service to begin.

Jaimi's immediate family had gathered at Grant's waterfront home in the morning before the service. They spent the morning preparing for the funeral together and tidying up the house, before friends eventually came to help them transport bouquets of flowers which have been arriving since news of Jaimi's tragic death spread. 

Jaimi's younger sister Morgan, who is pregnant, arrived with her husband Ryan and their two-year-old son Flynn before other members of the family after they left the Kenny home earlier on Saturday to head to the church. 

Jaimi was particularly close with Flynn, and constantly doted on him. 

The proud aunt often commented on how much she adored the two-year-old - who shares an incredible likeness to her when she was a child, with her famous golden blonde tresses and big blue eyes. 

Just three weeks ago, Morgan shared a photograph of her and Flynn to Instagram, and Jaimi was quick to comment: 'Just divine, both of you', alongside several heart emojis.

Four weeks before that, she again commented on a photograph of Flynn, and commented that Morgan's growing family was 'just the cutest'.

'Darling Flynn, oh you are beautiful,' another comment left by Jaimi read.
