“You were my first love, my best friend, my work buddy, my travel buddy, there’s-something-in-your-teeth-buddy. The first person to break my heart and then mend it again. The only person to witness me, all of me: the good, the bad, the pyjamas….”

“You were magic, a unicorn, and everybody knew it. You loved people, and they loved you. And oh, how you made us laugh! You haven’t just fought a good fight, my baby. You fought the best fight.”

She concluded: “You finished the race well, the suffering is over. Now Rest In Peace, my Jamie. Cancer might have won the battle for your body, but your soul was never beaten. I will always love you xxx.”
