Shane Warne’s Family Break Silence On Their Pain And Loss

Shane Warne’s family members spoke for the first time after the tragic death of Australia’s legendary cricketer in Thailand on Friday. Warne’s family broke their silence and issued a lengthy statement on Monday night. The lengthy statement had individual tributes from Warne’s parents Keith and Brigette, brother Jason, three children Brooke, Jackson, and Summer, and his ex-wife Simone Callaghan.

Widely hailed as one of the greatest bowlers to have played the game, Shane Warne was in Thailand when he passed away due to a suspected heart attack. He was 52.

His family together expressed the pain they have been going through and the impossible void left to fill. His parents wrote:

“The night of the 4th of March 2022 is when a never-ending nightmare began for our family, for that is the date we lost our much loved and admired son, father, brother and Uncle, Shane Keith Warne’ a tragedy we will never come to terms with,”

To find words to adequately express our sadness is an impossible task for us and looking to a future without Shane is inconceivable, hopefully the mountain of happy memories we all have will help us cope with our ongoing grief.

Shane Warne's family share their grief

Warne’s eldest daughter Brooke expressed how she will always cherish the time she spent with her father. She said that she is lucky and proud to call Warne her father. She said: “We were so similar in so many ways and I always used to joke that I got your genes and about how much that annoyed me!”

He added: “Well now I couldn’t be happier and prouder that I have your genes. I am lucky and will forever be so proud to call you my Dad forever. I love you to infinity and back and I will miss you forever.”

Shane’s daughter Summer expressed her wish for a tighter final hug and the hurt of their time together being robbed. She wrote:

And your final breaths were only moments away,” she said. “I wish I could’ve told you that everything was going to be okay and hold your hand.

“Our time was robbed. I want more holidays with you, more laughs where your smile lights up the whole room, more ‘goodnight I love you SJ, I’ll see you in the morning’, more talks about how our days were and just to feel safe when you would hug me and you would let me know how proud you are of me and how much you love me.

“You haven’t died Dad, you’ve just moved to a different place, and that is in our hearts.”

Her brother Jackson echoed the same sentiment as he expressed how anything will fill the void left in his broken heart. He said:

Sitting at the poker table, walking around the golf course, watching the Saints and eating pizza is never going to be the same,” Jackson said. “But I know all you ever wanted for me is to be happy, no matter what. You just wanted me to be happy, that’s it.

“So that’s what I’m going to do, try and be happy. I am going to miss you so much Dad and you were truly the best father and mate anyone could’ve asked for.”
