Twin sisters sing final song to their gravely ill mum – a day later she had died

This is the heartbreaking moment two sisters sing to their dying mum just a day before she passed away of a brain tumour.

Twins Lauren and Sophie Cripps, eight, from Thatcham, Berkshire, lost their mum Alex, 40, on January 10.

The day before she died, the girls’ dad Lee Cripps filmed them singing a Kylie Minogue song to their bed-ridden mum for the final time.

Choosing the song "Dancing", the girls, wearing Harry Potter onesies, belt out the lyrics, "When you come knocking, I’ll be at your door / I don’t even wanna stop / I’m gonna give it all I’ve got".

Alex, who had been battling the brain tumour since February 2014, can be seen sleeping on the bed while her daughters hold her hand.

One of the girls is heard innocently saying: "Sweaty hands."

The video was shared by heartbroken Lee yesterday on his Twitter and personal Facebook blog Life Without Mummy .

He accompanied the video with the caption: "Our girls singing to their mummy, the day before she died. Alex died on 10th Jan 2019.

"Really want Kylie Minogue to see this, to see how much her music means to us as a family and I would love for our girls to meet her. Please share in the hope Kylie sees it."

Lee told Mirror Online: "I felt proud and sad at the same time.

"Proud they were wanting to share Mummy’s last days, she passed away less than 24 hours later, but sad that eight-year-old girls were losing their mummy."

It has since been viewed more than 3,700 times on Facebook in less than 24 hours and has led to Kylie Minogue commenting on it herself.

The pop star wrote: "Lee, thank you for sharing this tender moment of your girls singing to Alex. I’m so touched and so very sorry for your loss. Sending you and your girls lots of love."

More than £20,000 has been raised in Alex’s honour for the Brain Tumour Charity since her diagnosis in 2014.
