I deeply miss you you wonderful, hairy man, and will be celebrating your life today. Love you so so much!’

Also honouring her father, Zelda, 33, shared a quote from writer Haruki Murakami, which appeared related to suicide prevention.

It read: 'And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, whether the storm is really over.

'But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in.'
