Friends and family of Juice WRLD said goodbye during a private funeral on Friday (December 13). It took place at the Holy Temple Cathedral Church of God in Harvey, Illinois near Chicago. Juice Wrld’s mother wrote a message to be attached to the funeral program.
“My dear son Jarad, God trusted me to raise you and I poured all I had into you as the Lord guided me,” Wallace wrote. “We were inseparable and even though you left home early, we were always in each other’s hearts and always had a special bond.”
“We were always overjoyed to see each other, and you still called me ‘mommy’ as you hugged and kiss me when you saw me. Your love was pure and innocent, and your heart was genuine. You truly cared about people and wanted to make the world a better place. I am going to miss you dearly. Rest in peace my dear one; mommy loves you.”
The program also included photos of the rapper along with photo collages with friends and family. Juice Wrld passed away last Sunday after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport. Juice Wrld’s siblings, Brian, Alyssa and Maya Wallace, remembered their brother in the program also. Opening with quote from Plato, they wrote, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, fight to the imagination and life to everything. Jarad, you brought life, light and laughter to everyone you met. We will carry you in our hearts always. We love you.”
