The mum-of-three wrote underneath a black and white picture: "Home from a busy morning and thinking of my brother."

"Today is the 3 year anniversary of his passing and I think this year is one of the hardest- as it’s real now. He’s not coming back and the shock is finally gone," she said.

"Today and every single day, Mikey, we miss you," she finished.
