SHINED O’Connor said, “I can never live without you,” as she plans the funeral of her teenage son today.
In a heartbreaking tweet, the star opened up about her grief after the death of 17-year-old Shane O’Connor.
The boy’s body was found after he disappeared from Tallaght Hospital in Dublin on Thursday.
The Nothing Compares 2 U singer revealed in a series of posts that she is now preparing to say goodbye to her son.
“Shane, baba, hold on to me,” she wrote.
“Wherever you are, please stay with me. My baby.
“I don’t know how I’m going to live without you.”
The 55-year-old man threatened the hospital with legal action after Shane went missing two days before his death.
“May God forgive the Irish state, because I will never do that,” she said.
“I DON’T KNOW HOW TO LIVE”
Police had previously filed an appeal in favor of Shane, along with a photograph of him.
In the CCTV image, he was wearing dark jeans, a black sweatshirt with a colorful symbol on the front, a dark red top, and white sneakers.
But a Gardai spokesman confirmed that the search was “stopped” after the body was found.
A spokesman said: “Following the discovery of the body in the Bray Wicklow area on Friday, January 7, 2022, the missing persons appeal against 17-year-old Shane O’Connor has been dismissed.”
The mother of four children, Sinead, confirmed Shane’s tragic death and shared a poem he wrote.
She wrote: “My beautiful son, Neviim Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the light of my life, today decided to end his earthly struggle and now with God.
“May he rest in peace, and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be calm. “
