Katy B: 'Hopefully one day my heart will heal'

"He was the kindest person, he was never spiteful, judgemental or rude. He had banter for days and I still can’t believe I will never hear that loud laugh or see that Cheshire cat smile again that made whatever worry I had on my mind dissolve.

"When we were little my brother was picked as team captain for everything as he was a badboy sportsman but would always pick me first for everything to be on his side, even though I was the smallest girl who would never score any goals, he didn't care he just put my interests first!!

"He supported me in everything I did, I remember being back stage at one of my first gigs and he was there in floods of tears telling me how proud of me he was! And I was so so proud of him! I wish I could have been more like him!!

"I have countless memories of him teaching me how to ride a bike, how to swim, dive, build a den, fish and climb and words cannot express how much I'm going to miss him!"
