“I know I will never get over losing you and this still doesn’t feel real – I’m desperately just waiting for the moment I wake up from this nightmare.”
Vicky continued: “The only solace I can take from this is that I spent your last night with you and all of our best friends and you knew how much we loved you. How important you were to us and how you kept us together as a group.
“I never met a more selfless person. Some of the best moments of my life I shared with you and the lasses. I do not want to accept that you won’t be at my wedding.
“The world will forever be less bright without you in it. But I suppose you were just too special. You were too good for us Paul and I hope they look after you in heaven. Show them how it’s done boot off burns.”
