Gately was busy working on children's fantasy novel The Tree Of Seasons before his tragic death last week. However, at his emotional funeral in Dublin, Ireland Keating said that he was determined to pay tribute to his best friend by completing his work.

"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," the Daily Express quoted Keating as saying.

Meanwhile, a toxicology report into the death of Gately has apparently put an end to speculation that the 33-year-old had had been taking drugs on the night he died.

The singer was found dead at his holiday home in Spain after choking on his vomit in the night on October 10.
