‘On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak. I feel like I have cried an ocean.
‘We never made it to the altar; or got to say our vows, or dance our first dance, but I know you know that you were my entire world and the best thing that has ever happened to me, Danielle. I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you.’
He added that he was going to muster his strength for their son and aims to raise him ‘just the way we always wanted’ and ensure that the little boy ‘will know how amazing his mummy was’.
