The following tribute to Kylie Dembrey is made on behalf of her family:
“We are grieving the loss of Kylie who has been cruelly taken from us too soon.
“She had just embarked on a college course and was feeling optimistic about her future helping those with mental health problems.
“Kylie was our daughter, sister, cousin and niece, and a mother to two beautiful boys.
“Although she was petite, she had a big personality and our lives will not be the same without her.
“Kylie faced challenges in her life, but she overcame them with her sassiness and sense of humour.
“We shall miss her smile and laugh and our world will be a quieter place without her.”
