Julia added that her husband Peter isn’t handling things well at all.

"He's having a real hard time," she said, adding that he blames himself for their eldest son's death.

Describing her sons, Julia said they were “best friends”.

"They loved each other so much. They loved playing together. They loved sports," she said.

Following the death of William, Julia said Ayden would try and cheer her up.

"He tried to cheer me up most of the time. He was such a sweet boy. Last week, I was crying and he said, 'Mummy, don't cry'."

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help the family pay for the funerals of the two boys.

The two boys are survived by their younger brother Damien.
