THE late reality TV star Jade Goody will be "largely forgotten" in time, a church minister has told Honiton Town Council in his Easter address.Reverend Peter Robinson, of Honiton Evangelical Congregational Church, spoke of Jade's fight against cancer.Speaking just two days after the star's very public funeral, attended by thousands, he told councillors: "In time, she will be largely forgotten - except by her friends and family - and another celebrity will take centre stage."After reading an excerpt from the New Testament, Mr Robinson said Jesus had never been forgotten because he "didn't cheat death, he beat death"."Death is our greatest enemy - not the credit crunch or the global economy," he warned, pointing out that, through Jesus, there is life after death.
