Celina Jaitly’s mother,
Meeta Jaitly took her last breath after battling cancer on June 8 in Lucknow.
The actress shared the unfortunate news on social media and penned an emotional
letter describing how her mother bravely fought the deadly disease. Sadly,
Celina lost her father, Colonel Vikram Kumar Jaitly 11 months back due to a prolonged illness. The
actress, who was pregnant and holidaying in Dubai at that time, rushed back to
India to perform his final rites.
Here’s what Celina wrote about her mother and her fight with cancer:
“A thousand tears
could not bring you back, I know, because I cried...A thousand words could not
bring you back I know, because I tried...
Our most beloved, gorgeous and stunning mother, Meeta Jaitly left us yesterday on the 8th of June 2018 (Lucknow) to join her soulmate and beloved husband Colonel Vikram Kumar Jaitly just 11 months after his tragic and untimely demise.
A brave army wife, a professor of literature, an entrepreneur, former beauty queen and most beloved grandmother. She fought a case of a serious form of galloping cancer bravely until her last breath like a true infantry wife before succumbing to the disease in our arms yesterday.
She is mourned by her entire family and the grief has been unbearable for myself and my brother Vikrant Kumar Jaitly, her mother Mrs Usha Francis and brothers Ameet Francis, Gautam Francis, sister Asha Asthana, Son in law Peter Haag, Daughter in Law Charul Chaturvedi Jaitly, sisters in law Emma and Avantika Francis, nieces, nephews and her most beloved grandsons Winston, Viraaj and Arthur.
They say angels carry you on their wings in times of
trouble, myself and my entire family would like to take this opportunity to
express our immense and heartfelt gratitude to esteemed SaharaShree Sir
Shubroto Roy, his wonderful wife Mrs Swapna Roy, his son Seemanto Roy, CEO
Sahara Hospitals Babu Sahib, the amazing Indian avatar of Florence Nightingale,

difficult final journey a blessed one. We are indebted for eternity to
SaharaShree and SaharaParivaar, and with this we bid you adieu Mother until we
sleep in your arms again.
