A family statement issued

He also said that Saoirse was a very caring person, and she always loved her friends and family, especially her mother Courtney Kennedy, father Paul, her stepmother Stephanie and grandmother Ethel Kennedy. She was always hopeful for better in the future and promise everyone for love and well being.
