‘Getting told you have less then two hours to hold the love of your life the person that was always here no matter what to help us love us,’ she wrote on Monday.
‘How am I meant to tell my boys their daddy isn’t here anymore? I’m so speechless.
‘I loved you always and forever will my baby. I’ll spend every second I have left with you. And always have you in my heart forever.
‘Your boys will know how much you loved us. You always made sure we had everything we needed and more. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to hold you love you.
‘I have no words you were our world.’
He collapsed on the doorstep and screamed for an ambulance, telling those around him he loved his partner before becoming unresponsive, 9News reported.
