Hugo Chetcuti’s son Luke and his brother Isaac have written touching messages marking the anniversary of the business entrepreneur’s death.

“Today marks one year without you physically; I say this because your soul and presence lives on within me. This time last year, the weight of the world fell on my shoulders, and I was just 26 years old,” Luke wrote on social media.

Chetcuti, the owner of several well-known Paceville nightclubs and restaurants, died in hospital six days after he was stabbed in the stomach outside one of his own business ventures.

“Never did I imagine that I would receive that helpless call to tell me what has happened. Never did I imagine that I would be carrying your coffin.  Never did I imagine that you wouldn’t make it. Never did I imagine that The doctor would walk out that door and shake her head. Never did I imagine that I would be writing this message.”

The younger Chetcuti had pledged to continue his father’s legacy after the profound effect he had upon his son’s life.

“If this wasn’t reality, I’d never believe what I’ve achieved in one year, the strength And courage I didn’t know existed. I never noticed until after your death, that you developed me to have these strengths and everything I do is all thanks to you.”

“This year was the hardest year of my life; I lost a friend, father and idol.  I saw who really loved me and who was only there for the good times. I found support from people I never imagined would and saw the true colours of others.  I am a warrior all because of you. When something brings me down, I know that I’ve got through the biggest obstacle in my life, so many other ones will never compare.”

“Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you or feel your presence next to me because I know that if you weren’t guiding me, I wouldn’t have got passed this year.  Once again, I promise to keep your legacy going no matter what,” he said.

Never did I imagine that I would be carrying your coffin. Never did I imagine that you wouldn’t make it. Never did I imagine that The doctor would walk out that door and shake her head. Never did I imagine that I would be writing this message. If this wasn’t reality, I’d never believe what I’ve achieved in one year, the strength And courage I didn’t know existed. I never noticed until after your death, that you developed me to have these strengths and everything I do is all thanks to you. This year was the hardest year of my life, I lost a friend, father and idol. I saw who really loved me and who was only there for the good times. I found support from people I never imagined would and saw the true colors of others. I am a warrior all because of you. When something brings me down I know that I’ve got through the biggest obstacle in my life so any other ones will never compare.

Isaac, Hugo’s brother, also shared a message marking a year since his horrific murder.

“Dear Hugo please give me the strength to cope with this pain of your loss. One year later and the sound of silence that there is in my heart is unbearable.”

“I recall that image of the attack every single day.”

“You were never alone. Me and Cheryle never left your side. We entered the hospital with you that night and left it with you together with Luke and all the family. You know how much we loved you in life and we still do in death. I visit your grave regulary, scheduled, you know that I never miss a visit… Even when the cemetry is closed I call your name from behind the gates to tell you im here.”

“Hugo, please take care of mum. The way she cries out your name is so devastating. No mother should bury her son.”

“I lived my life under your wing since i was born. You were my hero. You used to take me with you everywhere. I had a great childhood in your presence cause i had you as my big brother. Those memories help to relieve some pain when it strikes harder than usual.
I know when it will be my time i will find you waiting for me at the gates of heaven as you used to do as when we were kids.”
