Johannah's legacy will live on forever and it's so amazing that Louis and Lottie feel comfortable enough sharing this on social media. They were notoriously quiet when she was sick but they haven't stayed quiet since her passing. The famous family wants to let the world know how missed Johannah really is.
Louis has yet to talk about her death publicly, but the day of her passing a statement was released that really spoke to how they felt and what they wanted to say. The statement read, "It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday 7th December 2016. Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private."
Mother's Day and Johannah's birthday were two days that she will always be remembered by amongst many others during the year.
