“We only had you in our arms for eight months but in that time, you brought so much happiness to our lives.

“We have had so many incredible memories together as a family that will never be forgotten – thank you for giving us the best Christmas and holidays together during this time.

“You started crawling really early, you loved your food, you started saying mom.

“Your top teeth were just coming out, you were walking up the stairs and you were always laughing while doing it because you knew you were being naughty.

“You were so close to getting back up on your own. I’m so sorry you never grew up.

“Our little Zack, mommy and daddy love you so much you don’t deserve any of this. You were such a happy and cheeky boy,” they added.

“I’m so sorry this happened – our hearts are truly broken. We will never forget you, you will always be in our hearts.

“We miss you so much and we will miss you for the rest of our lives. We know your Aunt Karlene will take the best care of you.

The grieving family also paid tribute to Karlene Walker, 30, who leaves behind a daughter, Everly.

“How can we put into words the incredible mother, partner, daughter, sister, granddaughter, aunt, niece and friend that Karlene was? ” they said.

“You light up every room you enter like the shining diamond you were.

“You leave behind Everly’s most precious daughter, and she will know how amazing and special you were.

“You had so much to look forward to in life and that was taken.

“You would go above and beyond what you could to help anyone and care so much about others, always putting others before yourself.
