Gemma's father Anthony McCluskie said today:
"This has been an extremely traumatic year for myself and my wife Carole, my son Danny and his partner Shantelle, Gemma's extended family and all her many friends.....To some of her friends Gem was known as 'Gemstar' or 'Li'l Gem', small in stature, she was huge in personality with a zest for life.
"Gemma was a daughter, a sister, an aunty, a cousin and a niece and is very much loved and greatly missed."
