Stephen Gately – gone, but not forgotten

It was a terribly sad day for all friends, family and fans of Stephen Gately yesterday as he was finally laid to rest in Dublin. Over 3,500 people attended the funeral to pay their respects and say goodbye to the talented singer.

Ronan Keating broke down towards the end of his tribute, as he told everyone, “It will never be the same without him”. Then continued, “The world has lost one of its brightest stars. We have lost a brother and I have lost my wing man.” He added, “Forever young and never forgotten. A friend, a brother, a son, a husband and a hero.We are going to miss you brother, we love you and we always will. We know you have found peace, perfect peace.”
