He wrote: ‘An indescribable loss surrounds us, so now some photos showing our boundless love. Good night my love.
EJ spent the last three and a few weeks of her life being cared for by wonderful women in Dorothy House well-being. I was with him every day and fell in love with their kindness, regression and compassion. ‘
‘I know he felt very caring and safe, and I will never forget Ella, Gemma, Gemma, Monds, Clare, Trish, Irish Helen, Scottish Helen, Andrea and many more. Work. Real life amazes women, ‘he continued.
‘Dorothy House is a charity, so if any of you can, donate to them. I can’t imagine how we would have managed without them. ‘

Anne-Marie later encouraged others to share photos and memories of EJ, who soon teamed up with Sarah Moore, who sent condolences from the Money for Nothing team.
