THE FAMILY of pregnant 16-year-old Kayleigh-Anne Palmer, who died over the weekend, has paid tribute to her memory.
Kayleigh-Anne’s mother Helen Bage said: “Kay was my whole world. We had a strong relationship filled with love and laughter. Our bond was so strong we were best friends.
“Kay was so beautiful inside and out. She was very loving towards family and friends and always remained loyal to us all.
“You always knew when Kay was around because she had the most wicked sense of humour and always made people laugh.
“Her personality lit up every room she entered.”
Kayleigh-Anne’s father Dean Palmer said: “Kay was my beautiful daughter. She was great company and had a great sense of humour.
“I was the first to hold her and I’m devastated she won’t ever get the chance to hold her baby.”
Kayleigh-Anne’s grandparents Michael and Carole Bage said: “From the moment our grand-daughter Kay was born, we were privileged to be a part of her life.
”We gave her our unconditional love and in return she gave us so much more. Both she and her friends filled our home for many years with fun and laughter but sadly this can be no longer.
"Thankfully, nothing is more precious than all the memories we hold dear of our beautiful Kay who was so very special to us.
"We loved you so much Kay and you will always be in our hearts - Nan and Grampa”
