Julie Fallon's brother Andrew Sefton was one of 96 people who died following overcrowding at Hillsborough during the FA Cup semi-final in April 1989.
Background statements are being read out in court at the start of the new inquest into the disaster.
Ms Fallon said her brother's life was like a book from which most of the pages had been torn out.
