"I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you.

He continued: "I am completely broken trying to process this and I honestly don't know where to go from here, but I do know I need to use any strength I can muster for our little boy.

"The most beautiful person inside and out. The most incredible soul. We have lost such a special person and I am sure we are about to see an abundant outpouring of love that reflects that. I will try to find peace in your messages and comments, but right now I am grieving and I will be for a very, very long time."

He concluded: "My darling Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever."
