Chloe Rutherford, 17, and Liam Curry, 19, both from South Shields, were “inseparable” and “beautiful inside and out”, their relatives said as they became the latest youngsters known to have died in the attack.
The teenagers were among 22 people killed, after a pop concert at Manchester Arena on Monday night.
A GoFundMe page started today by family friend, Carla Gray says: “We’ve set this up to help pay for Chloe and Liam’s funeral, as well as any expenses the family has incurred.
“I’ve set this up as a close friend is Chloes Auntie, and as a community we thought it was the right thing to do”.
In a joint statement released through Greater Manchester Police their relatives said: “On the night our daughter Chloe died and our son Liam died, their wings were ready but our hearts were not.
“They were perfect in every way for each other and were meant to be. They were beautiful inside and out to ourselves and our families, and they were inseparable.
“Chloe always described herself as ditzy who Liam adored and would do anything for, including dealing with Chloe’s demands for chocolate.
“They lived to go to new places together and explore different cities. They wanted to be together forever and now they are.”
