"Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives as a family. I miss her hugs." He added that Sammy, his nickname for her, was the "most trusted confidant and an ardent supporter of everything I did in my career."

Harrison and Annabelle also paid tribute to their mother and the hole she left behind.

"Her love and happiness carried us through our whole lives," they said in a joint statement. "Mum is our best friend and we're honoured to have received a love like hers."

Warwick continued to pay tribute, saying that all of the recent milestones of his career would not have been possible without her support.

It is believed that Samantha contracted sepsis after she had surgery to decompress her spine.

"We went home a week later and suddenly I couldn't feel my legs," she explained. "I thought I was still recovering from the surgery so I went to bed, but the next day I felt awful, as though I had been hit by a truck."

"I stayed in bed all day while Warwick and Harrison went to a family party and the next morning I woke at 4am feeling even worse," she recalled. "As the day went on I couldn't concentrate, I lay on the sofa and when I tried to get up I collapsed on the floor."

Her family's tribute makes it clear just how much Samantha will be missed, and what an impact she had on those she loved most.
