Bee Gee Barry Gibb paid an emotional tribute to his brother Robin's "magnificent mind and his beautiful heart" at his funeral - saying he had finally been reunited with his twin.
The 62-year-old singer died from kidney failure last month after fighting cancer and pneumonia and suffering from a serious bowel condition.
Barry, the sole surviving member of the Bee Gees trio, had a trembling voice as he told the congregation at St Mary's Church in Thame, Oxfordshire: "Life is too short. In Robin's case, absolutely too short.
"We should have had 20 years, 30 years of his magnificent mind and his beautiful heart."
Referring to the late Maurice Gibb, who died in 2003, he added: "When you're twins, you're twins all your life. You go through every emotion.
"And they're finally together. I think the greatest pain for Robin in the past 10 years was losing his twin brother, and I think it did all kinds of things to him. And now they're together."
Robin's elderly mother, Barbara, left the church just before Barry - the last of the four Gibb brothers - gave his eulogy.
