David Furnish is mourning the loss of his mother Gladys Furnish.
 

Elton’s husband took to his Instagram page to pay tribute.
 
He wrote: “Today I lost my beautiful, angelic Mother. She passed away peacefully in the middle of the night, with me and my brothers by her side,” he wrote. “Mum radiated gentle kindness. She was utterly devoted to her family. We all richly benefitted from her patient wisdom and bountiful love.”
 
The Canadian film-maker shared a photo of Gladys marrying his father Jack, and added: “I treasure this photo of Mum and Dad on their wedding day – bursting with joy and fresh-faced optimism over their union and the life they planned to build together. They shared the greatest love I have ever known; A rock-solid foundation from which my brothers and I flourished.” He concluded: “Rest in peace Mum. You lived your life impeccably. I will never forget you. I promise to do my best to pass the gifts you gave to me on to my own beautiful sons.”
