Simon Thomas has opened up about his wife’s death in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live. His wife, Gemma Thomas, died aged 40 just three days after being diagnosed with leukemia. He has now opened up for an emotional in-depth interview.
At one point he detailed the heart-wrenching moment when he told his son of the news. "I would never wish this on my worst enemy. You can't dress it up,” he explained. “I said 'you know mummy wasn’t well today - I’m afraid mummy died'” Thomas recalled, in perhaps the most heartbreaking moment of the interview. “He collapsed onto the floor and the tears... we rolled around the floor together”.
Thomas also said he had struggled with his faith in God after the death. “I rage at God,” Thomas said, “I just screamed at God ‘Why? Why have you done this?”. The interview also saw Thomas recall his wife’s last moments and parting words.
