Lisa Curry held a heartfelt birthday celebration for her late daughter, Jaimi Lee Kenny on Friday.
The 59-year-old former Olympian shared a series of photos on her Instagram from the day, as she and her family marked what would have been Jaimi’s 34th birthday.
Lisa, as well as her ex-husband and Jaimi’s father Grant Kenny, enjoyed a small lunch at home and lit pink candles in memory of their girl.

The family also organised a series of desserts emblazoned with the words ‘love you forever,’ set up pink balloons around a dining table and put up gorgeous pictures of Jaimi for the celebration.
‘A beautiful celebration for our birthday girl, Jaimi,’ Lisa touchingly wrote. ‘Surreal, but beautiful.’
‘Once again, she seems to be with us…’ Lisa mentioned before referring to ‘light fragments’ between her and Jaimi’s father, Grant, as an indication of her presence.
‘He (Grant) has a heart shaped one on his shirt… too obvious and happening too often to dismiss… our girl is definitely around us,’ the Olympian said.
A deeper meaning: Lisa revealed the reasons behind the chosen items placed on the table, which included framed pictures of Jaimi, lit pink candles, cakes, desserts, balloons and flowers
Lisa then revealed the reasons behind the chosen items placed on the table.
‘Her (Jaimi’s) love of all things pretty: candles, flowers, the most divine cakes and biscuits and of course, her most loved things… family,’ she stated.
‘We all love you forever Jaimi and you’ll never be forgotten,’ Lisa said touchingly with a series of flower emoji’s.
She then tagged all their members of the family featured in the images, which included her adult children with ex Grant, Jett and Morgan, and Morgan’s two young children. Her husband Mark Tabone was also there.

Lisa shared another beautiful tribute to her daughter earlier, posting a series of pictures of mother and daughter throughout their years together.
‘Our beautiful Jaimi, born at 9.03am, 34 years ago,’ Lisa wrote. ‘Today is a hard day. I can’t even explain how I feel. I have no words.’
Lisa’s current husband, Mark Tabone, also made a tribute on Instagram.
Jaimi died in late September last year at the age of 33, following a battle with a ‘long term illness’.
It was later reported that Jaimi had battled alcoholism and an eating disorder before her death at a Sunshine Coast hospital.
