“My baby brother, my gentle giant, sadly passed away, suddenly, 2 weeks ago.
“He was 31 years old. There is no medical explanation as to why we lost him so soon and whilst we investigate further, we are having to accept that nothing will bring our boy back to us.
“L.J (Laurence John) was born when I was 15 years old and from the moment I first held him in my arms, I felt so proud and fiercely protective of him.
“He was such a character! He made us all laugh and loved nothing more than making a plan, having a great play list, bringing people together and generally having a giggle.”
She added: “He hated the thought of a party ending and so was always on to the next thing!”
