Former Olympian Lisa Curry says she 'doesn't know what to do' after death of daughter Jaimi Kenny
In six simple words Lisa Curry has expressed her overwhelming grief over the death of her daughter Jaimi Kenny last week.
“I don’t know what to do...”
The former Olympian has again taken to social media this morning, eight days after she and ex-husband Grant Kenny announced their 33-year-old daughter had passed away at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in Queensland.
The family said she had died after a long term illness. It has since been revealed she had battled an eating disorder for many years.

The family farewelled her at a service on Saturday at a small chapel decorated with fairy lights and flowers.
Ms Kenny was carried into the chapel in a white coffin, covered in pink and orange dahlias.
Brother Jett and father Grant Kenny led the pallbearers, and Curry was seen inconsolable as the moving service came to an end.
Curry has openly shared her grief over the loss of her daughter in a searing series of Instagram posts.
In a post just two days after Jaimi died, the champion swimmer told of her overwhelming grief and thanked her supporters.
“Sadly, I know that we are not the only parents who have lost a child... so to all the parents who have lost a child, and to those who will, today, tomorrow.... somehow I guess we get through it,” she wrote on Instagram.
“The grief is immense and we are allowing it to take its course.”
She urged parents to make a small act in memory of Jaimi.
“If I can ask you to do something from Jaimi... right now, go and give your children the biggest hug and tell them how much you love them, and do that everyday because you’ll never know if it’s the last day,” she wrote.
The day after the funeral, Curry again took to Instagram sharing with followers Jaimi’s last moments.
“Jaimi...as dad and I lovingly held you when you took your first breath, we lovingly held you as you took your last.
“Jaimi, my love, our hearts are aching, but know you will be forever with us, and forever loved wherever we go.”
