The world is still struggling to come to terms with the fact that cricketer Shane Warne is no longer with us. The legendary Australia spinner breathed his last on March 4 due to a ‘suspected heart attack’ in Thailand. Shane Warne’s daughter Brooke Warne shared an emotional tribute to her father who passed away at the age of 52. Brooke wrote that she will miss him forever and will cherish all the wonderful memories she had with him.
Brooke Warne wrote, “Dad my heart is broken, 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.”
“We were so similar in so many ways and I always use to joke that I got your genes and I use to joke about how much that annoyed me!! Well now I couldn’t be happier and prouder that I have your genes and I was lucky and will forever be, so proud to call you my dad. I love you to infinity and back and I will miss you forever,” Brooke added.
