Only Fools and Horses star Nicholas Lyndhurst’s wife writes touching tribute to son Archie on first Mother’s Day since his death

Only Fools and Horses actor Nicholas Lyndhurst and his wife Lucy tragically lost 19-year-old son Archie in September 2020

Nicholas Lyndhurst’s wife paid tribute to her late son Archie as she reflected on life without him on Mother’s Day (March 14).

CBBC star Archie was tragically found dead at the family home in Fulham, London in September last year at the age of 19 reports the MirrorOnline.

The up and coming actor suffered an intracerebral haemorrhage caused by acute lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukaemia – a condition so rare that only 800 people die a year from it.

And on Sunday, grieving Lucy took to her Instagram page to upload a gallery of snaps of Archie as a child and penned a heartfelt message in which she shared how much joy and happiness she found in being his mother.

The strong parent went on to add that she was struggling to navigate the day without her son by her side before thanking him for all the ‘beautiful happy times’ they shared when he was alive.

She wrote: “My dearest darling boy. To get through today without you is the hardest thing ever, she typed below the upload on her social media page.

“I miss you every minute of every day. I will never stop loving you. Not ever. Thank you for making me a mummy. It was the best adventure I’ve ever had. You never stopped me from smiling ever. Thank you for all those beautiful happy times.”

She continued: “I shall be forever in your debt. You teach me everyday to be a better person. Love you today, tomorrow and always. All my love your devoted Mama. XxX.”

Below the offering – that showcased the mother and son’s loving bond with photos of them enjoying days out when Archie was a toddler, as well as embracing one another and candid moments – several of Lucy’s friends and social media followers left her kind messages to let her know that she was in their thoughts.

Comedian Jack Whitehall’s mum, Hilary, typed: “Big love to you Mama Lyndhurst. Stay strong and always remember you are still Archie’s Mama and you always will be. And he worshipped the ground you walked on.”

Nethra Tilakumara – who was dating Archie before his death – added: “Thank you for giving us your beautiful boy. You are the most extraordinary Mama out there. He utterly adores you Lucy, you gave him the happiest times, ever.”
