A young mum has tragically died leaving behind her four-year-old son.
Jordi-Mai Richardson was found dead at her home in Barwell in Leicestershire last Monday.
Her death came just a few weeks after she had passed her driving test and while she was looking forward to a promotion at work, Leicestershire Live reported.
Jordi-Mai had a four-year-old son, Logan, who had been staying with her mum in Peterborough the day she died.
Best friend, Elle Keogh, 23, said: "I got a phone call from her ex-partner to say she had taken her life and I was heartbroken.
"Absolutely lost, scared – everything felt empty.
"She always had problems with her mental health, but she was also a really happy person and she was so sociable, always wanting to go out and see people, and loved her drum & bass music.
Friends have paid tribute to the 22-year-old
"She was the sort of person who could enter a room and make everyone smile instantly.
"She worked for Cadent, the gas company, and had just had an interview for a promotion she was really excited about. She was clever and she really deserved it and wanted it.
"She had only passed her driving test two or three weeks earlier, too.
"She wanted to drive around the UK and see all the caves, beaches and waterfalls. She was loved by so many people."
Thousands have already been raised on a Gofundme set up by Elle to pay for her friend's funeral and to support Logan.
Elle said: "Nothing's set in stone yet but we want the funeral to be open to all her family and many friends.
"I want to give her the best send-off we possibly can and, hopefully, have enough left over to help provide for Logan. So many people have sent messages and donations."
More than £2,000 has been raised on the GoFundMe, with many using the page as a place to pay tribute to Jordi-Mai.
"She was one of the nicest people I've ever met. Her smile was so radiant," one person wrote.
"I know how much she adored Logan. She may have been a young mum but she did a super job of raising her son.
"I truly look up to her. Spread your wings and fly high. Sleep tight lovely."
Another added: "You really did light up a room. Rest peacefully – you deserve it."
