We are adrift, facing desperation. ‘We are deprived of a love that eclipsed the stars, the moon and the sun. ‘There is a great void in our lives that can never be filled; our beautiful, compassionate, intelligent, immensely talented girl is gone. ‘Faye fought with strength and bravery that kept her alongside those she loved so desperately and who loved her beyond comparison. ‘Faye was the sun, the light, the life we all gravitated towards and wanted to be around, she gave us joy, laughter and the gift of her music, she was the kindest and most generous sunshine who had a lot left to live. She shines bright, my baby.’
