Ronan Keating has vowed to finish late Stephen Gately's book in honour of his Boyzone bandmate.
The Irish star was busy working on The Tree Of Seasons before his tragic death last week (10Oct09).
He was just weeks away from finishing the children's fantasy novel, and had hoped for a Christmas (09) release.
And at his emotional funeral in Dublin, Ireland on Saturday (17Oct09), Keating told the congregation he is determined to pay tribute to his best friend by completing his work.
He said, "He was putting the finishing touches to his first book, The Tree Of Seasons. There are only a few pages left to do and by hook or by crook, those who loved him, and there are so many in this room, are going to finish his book."
