She wrote: ‘You were my boys, my world and more.

‘I wish I told you I love you everyday, I wish I didn’t shout, argue and fight with you, I wish you could just be with me right this second, I am so lost for words.

‘I wish you was here. How can you two just be gone like a flick of a switch, I love you with every piece of me, and I always will this is going to be so hard.

‘Because I don’t think I am ever going to get over the fact you have gone. I will never ever forget you ever, I love you so much Ellis and Elliott.’
