"All you ever wanted me to do was tell you everything was going to be OK and that was enough. Now I need to hear that from you.
"I am heartbroken. Deeply heartbroken. I knew you in ways that some people couldn’t even fathom. The good, the bad and the ugly.
"No matter what I always had your back and you were always on mine. Meeting you and not only spending time with you as a partner but also as one of your closest friends was both an honour and a privilege.
"We had our fair share of ups and downs, trials and tribulations but believe me when I say, I loved you with all my heart. Always have and always will," she said.
