“You looked after me, and protected me when I was at my lowest. You nurtured me and helped me see light.
“You sprayed my feet when they were stinking out the house. All you did was care about the people you loved. When things got bad, we’d cuddle each other on that sofa in Marylebone like two toddlers, and tell each other we’ve got this.”
He explained Terry “battled everything” on the daily and managed to beat what was thrown at him, but this time the virus “got you”.
“But you still fought. I don’t know a life without you,” he penned, solemnly.
“I don’t want a life without you. But I know you’ll be with me. You made my family feel like they were the only people in the world.
“I will never forget when you ran down the red carpet at the NTAs to make my Nan feel like a queen.
“The last messages we sent each other before you fell ill, were that we loved each other. And I always will Tel.”
He concluded his post with a tearful goodbye to his pal: “Thank you for every thing you gave me. My life will never be the same. Sleep well, my wonderful friend.”
