Elton has said a final goodbye to his late mother, calling her funeral “perfect.”

In a touching tribute to Sheila Eileen Farebrother, who died on December 4, the 70-year-old wrote on Instagram: “Dear Mum, Today’s funeral was perfect. Having the service in the family chapel and attended by your brother and sister brought us all comfort. Having the service where Nan lived out her final days brought you and your Mother back together again.”
Elton also noted a second service that he helped arrange for his mother’s friends.

“Tomorrow your friends will gather separately to say their good byes. I’ve chosen all the music so everything will be just right,” he wrote.

He concluded his post by writing, “Thank you for bringing me into the world and for all that you have done for me. Love, Elton #RIP”
