Lukey Storey, Felicite Tomlinson, said her last text to him before she had a cardiac arrest at the age of 18-years-old will haunt him for the rest of his life.
33-year-old Storey paid tribute to Tomlinson on his social media, saying she helped him through some difficult times in his life and helped him battle his demons. He wrote, “I’m writing in a state of shock. She was one of the kindest, sweetest, purist people I’d ever met. A purity too rare for this world.”
He added, “In many ways u were my first and only fan who always spoke to me about my music, telling me how important it was and encouraging me to write more and more. We understood each other from the get go.”
He also revealed, “I relapsed in my flat with only you there beside me, I saw in you what I carry too, I wish we had spent more time together sober, but we rarely were”. He added, “Too busy running away from our demons. Keeping each others pain in perfect company: We were pain twins”. Felicite’s friends reported that ever since her mother, Johannah Deakin, passed away at the age of 43 from leukemia 2 years ago, Felicite had had a tough time.
Storey added, “It feels like it should of been me, and a bad dream I will soon wake up from. I keep crying, not eaten or slept since I heard the news. I wish I could have done something, anything to have not let this happen. The last thing you said to me was calling me ‘bubba’ that you were proud of me for getting clean again.”
Without revealing the contents of the text, he wrote, “I replied thank you my darling and what I asked of u the next day will haunt me to my grave. Today I wish I was right there with you. It could of been me, or anyone in our circle of maniacs. I think it should of been me. I didn’t know whether I should even post this or make any of my feelings public because it feels too real , raw and personal.”
He added, “I think all I can now say is I’ve never been more aware of how temporary life is and f**king hold on to your loved ones and tell them you love them everyday because once they’re gone they’re gone. I’m f**king angry. I’ve got nothing else. Felicite You graced my life in such a short time and I will now miss you forever. I know you’d want me to stay clean and stay creating so that’s what I’ll do until I come and look for you on the other side.”
