Kirsty Cracknell passed away suddenly on December 11 as she looked forward to her 31st birthday celebrations.

Paying tribute to his sister, Craig said she was a "go-getter" who continued moving forward "no matter what".

He added: "She was just an unreal person. She was very strong-willed. She was very strong-minded and outgoing and loved life.
“She was working for a care company and she had done that for as long as I can remember. She just had that caring nature.
“She was gentle and kind but she was also strong and wouldn’t be walked all over. She loved to be out there doing different things and she was never sat still really.
"Kirsty was very much a daddy's girl and doted on him so much. Kirsty loved and was loved by so many people.”
A GoFundMe page has now been launched to help pay for Kirsty's funeral costs.
Rich Anderson who organised the fundraiser said she had tragically left behind her "darling boy" who she "doted on".
He said: "He knows his mum is a star in the sky."
