Shortly after Shane passed away from a heart attack in March during a holiday in Thailand, Brooke posted a tribute dedicated to her father.

Alongside a sweet picture of her arms around Shane as a child, she penned, “Dad, this doesn’t feel real and doesn’t make sense that you are not here with us anymore.

“It doesn’t feel right, you were taken away too soon, and life is so cruel. I will forever cherish our final memories together laughing and joking around with each other. We were happy.”

Brooke and Shane shared a special bond.

Brooke’s birthday is the second milestone the family has rung in since the legendary cricketer’s passing.

Jackson threw himself a party for his 23rd birthday in May, which proved the Warnes will continue living with the same enthusiasm their dad would encourage.
