Juice WRLD died tragically last weekend after suffering a seizure at Midway Airport in his hometown of Chicago. On Friday, the 21-year-old artist was laid to rest at a private funeral service. Several members of his family shared touching tributes, as revealed in funeral documents obtained by TMZ.
“My dear son Jarad, God trusted me to raise you and I poured all I had into you as the Lord guided me,” his mother said. “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,” she concluded.
His three brothers shared a quote from Plato during their tribute.
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, fight to the imagination and life to everything,” it read.
“Jarad, you brought life, light and laughter to everyone you met. We will carry you in our hearts always. We love you,” they said.
His grandma spoked as well: “I loved being a part of your life and watching the happy little boy grow up to become a thoughtful, caring and talented young man. Thank you for all the love and joy that you gave us. I am happy that you got a chance to live out your dreams,” she said.
His official cause of death has not been revealed yet, although there is speculation it was released to drug use. His family had a message about addiction following his passing.
“Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it,” they said in a statement. “We hope the conversations he started in his music and his legacy will help others win their battles as that is what he wanted more than anything.”
