There are individual tributes from Kirpal's brother, ex-partner, sister and parents.

From Sonie: "Bud was not only my big brother he was my soul mate, my role model and he was someone that I looked up to, there wasn't a day when I was not with him, my life has been turned upside down and a big part of me has been taken away. I will miss him and love him so much every day."

From Kirsty: "We are all heartbroken about what happened. He was the father of our two beautiful boys who miss him so much already. We shared a lot of memories and his happy, bright and funny personality will live on through his boys. You will always be their 'best friend'. Rest in peace x."

From Jagpal: "He always had a smile on his face and always seemed to have a new joke to tell. He was the best brother you could get. He was always there for me when I needed him and he was the only one I could talk to openly. It feels like a piece of my heart has been ripped out. Your sister is going to miss you so much x."

From Mum and Dad: "We love him and miss him so much and would do anything to have him back. We would not wish this hurt on any other family."
