Tom Parker’s wife Kelsey has taken to social media to thank fans for their support as she navigates life after her husband’s death.
Kelsey said the support she’s received from fans while going through the “most difficult time” of her life.
The Wanted’ Tom Parker died last month aged just 33 after a battle with brain cancer.
Kelsey took to Instagram to thank fans and provide an update on the funeral, captioning her stories: “Thank you for all your love and support. It really gets us through the most difficult time as a family.

“I politely request that no flowers be sent to the church as we make flowers as a family. If you want to pay for your requests, please line the streets for Tom.
“I also know that my husband wants to raise as much money as possible so that in the future I can help others and raise awareness about this terrible disease.
“So any donation would be wonderful and would help us a lot. Thanks again.
“Always welcome, the positive Parkers.”
This comes days after the mother-of-two announced Tom’s funeral will be held in a private ceremony on April 20.
She has encouraged fans of the singer to “line the streets” in Queensway, Petts Wood, in London.
The young singer died after a battle with stage four glioblastoma.
He was treated after doctors found he had a brain tumor in 2020 when he was told he was inoperable and had just 12 to 18 months to live.
The news broke last week when Tom’s wife Kelsey took to social media to share a sweet photo and moving caption.
Kelsey wrote: “It is with a heavy heart that we confirm that Tom passed away peacefully earlier today with his entire family by his side.
“Our hearts are broken, Tom was the center of our world and we cannot imagine life without his infectious smile and energetic presence.
“We are truly grateful for the outpouring of love and support and ask that we all unite to ensure Tom’s light continues to shine for his beautiful children.”
She then added: “Thanks to everyone who supported him throughout, he fought until the end. I am forever proud of you.”

A few days after his death, she shared an update with fans, thanking them for all the messages.
Posting a throwback snap with her husband, she wrote, “Words cannot express how much all your love and support means right now.
“We are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity.
“We have set up a donation page for those of you who would like to donate in Tom’s memory.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Tom married Kelsey Hardwick in 2018 with their first child, a daughter born in July 2019.
The couple welcomed their son in October 2020.
