“I’m left with a hole in my heart.”

By Erin Doyle
Home And Away star Sarah Stewart (née Roberts) has penned an emotional tribute to her brother Karl De Abrew, who has sadly passed away.
Karl succumbed to a 15-year battle with brain cancer, just months after attending Sarah's wedding to her Home and Away co-star James Stewart.
"Three months ago today he walked me down the aisle & now he is walking with the angels," Sarah wrote.
"I'm left with a hole in my heart & 34 years of beautiful memories... growing up together as children into adults.

"You fought THE BRAVEST battle Big Squirt to the very end and I promise to always live by your standards; to remember what you taught me, "it's all about the journey, not the destination" & "have no regrets". I love you, I cherish you, I salute you. You can rest now, we know you're dancing up there in the heavens, always watching down on us. Forever all my love, Medium Squirt x"
Many of Sarah's Home and Away co-stars took to her comments section to offer their condolences.
"So sad for you Sare and your precious family. Sending love and prayers to you all and see you soon. God bless you," wrote Lynne McGranger.
"Sarah, we love you and wish we could help take some of this pain away for you. Huge love and thoughts to your family," wrote Georgie Parker.
Olivia Deeble added: "Sending my love, prayers and support."
