Peter added: “Although they wanted to return later in the week, Freddie categorically denied himself and them another meeting.
“He didn’t want to put them through further suffering by them seeing him as bad as he was… Was there anything more for them to say to him?”
Jer, herself, also spoke of her son’s constant protectiveness of his family, even at that last meeting.
She said: “He asked, ‘Are you all right? Did any of the media worry you?’ We said: ‘Don’t worry about us, dear’.
“He was so ill and still he was being so caring.”
