SUGARBABES' Keisha Buchanan was left devastated after her dad died – and revealed his heartbreaking final text to her.
The singer, 36 – who has been a member of the girl group on-and-off since 1998 – paid an emotional tribute to her father in a sweet Instagram post.
Keisha shared a video from the funeral, showing the white horse and carriage hearse with the animals draped in Jamaican flags.
It also showed six pallbearers carrying the coffin into a church.
This is followed by photos alongside her dad, before ending on a boomerang of doves being released.
She also shared some texts from her dad, with one reading: "Thank you baby, I wouldn't want anyone else for my daughter.
"My heart belongs to you babe and it always will I will always be here for you, I'm blessed xxxx"
The final text read: "Hi My Baby, Thanks for being my beautiful Angel and thanks for making me the proudest Dad in the World and I'll always Love You. THANK YOU XXX"
She replies to the message: "Awww thank you dad love you always"
Keisha captioned the post: "Hardest few weeks of my life… heartbroken beyond belief.
"So much to say but it’s hard to put into words for a caption. My protector, the man I loved the most, the coolest parent, my twin flame…my daddy❤️ Sooo many thoughts…
"Who will give me away? What will I tell my children when I have them? What a thing to adjust to smh..
"But even in this I trust the lord to strengthen me… I’m hopeful that I’ll get through a day without tears & physical pain in my chest soon. Moment by moment… #missyouforever"
Her bandmate Mutya Buena replied: "Rip dad ❤️😔❤ … love u sis"
