"I’ve never experienced such intense love and care in my life. I can’t believe how lucky I am to have known you let alone share a life with you as your wife. I can’t believe I will never be able to hold your hand again," she wrote.

"I will be forever grateful to you for showing me what true love is and feels like. I will be forever grateful to you for making me a part of your family. A family that I thought only existed in fairy tales and movies. You knew I would be in the best hands possible.
