"I didn't want a brother! I wanted them to take you back [and] get me a sister! But growing up when it was just us 2 was the best," she wrote in her post.

"We did kill each other but you did still play barbies with me and house and I even dressed you up in my dresses.

"As we got older our worlds were two different places. But you were never too far away.

"Now I'd do anything to have my brother back and now our worlds are too far apart."

Commenters expressed their shock and sent condolences to the family after their devastating loss.

One person described Anthony as "one in a million" while others told of their heartbreak and sent "love to all the family".

Anthony will be laid to rest on Friday.
