Sarah Roberts, a former star of Home and Away, paid a moving tribute to her late brother Karl De Abrew.
Karl lost his battle with brain cancer three years ago in 2019, after 15 years of treatment. Dad was able to accompany Sarah down the aisle when she wed James Stewart in Ireland just three months before he passed away.
She sent a touching video of the siblings together, from their early years through Sarah’s wedding, along with a tearjerking caption.
“Today marks three years since your departure, but the benefit of memories is that they last forever. I can carry you around with me like a picture,” she said.
“I can concentrate on the memories and journey through the years when my heart is heavy and my eyes are wet. My mind may travel back to joyful days when you were here and my misery was lessened by the sounds of laughter.
She continued, “As I move forward in life, I find solace in a lifetime of’sweet memories’ of you who loved me so.
Her famous pals extended their sympathies to the star, and Zoe Ventoura from the TV show Home and Away liked the message.
Ada Nicodemou, who portrays Leah on the serial opera, wrote: “Sending you tonnes of love today.”
Mahesh Jadu, a cast member of Neighbours, added, “Warmth and a prayer flying his way, and yours.”
Actress Mallory Jansen wrote, “So beautiful Sarah, thinking of you today.”
“Sar, I’m sending you the biggest hug and my undying love. I can’t wait to offer it to you in person very soon. Love you,” commented makeup artist and former Home and Away actress Laura Vazquez.
The post received comments from Sarah’s supporters endorsing the actress.
“This gave me tears. One wrote, “I’m so sorry, darling.
Another said, “Sending you loads of love and hugs always, I know the anguish of losing a much-loved brother, it’s one of the worst feelings in the world.”
“Exchanging hugs. My lovely younger brother passed away 14 months ago. Always in our hearts, memories are great, a third said.
