“I went to an event last night & someone asked me how I'm doing, I answer honestly that I'm ready for the year to be over, I'm not ok just keeping up appearances mate to mate. 5 mins later he comes back & says are you sure you want that to be your quote on your brother's passing,” she tweeted.

Mrs Jones said that she understands that journalists are doing their job by asking but it’s still too soon and as much as she shows up for work, she is still hurting.
