“It was not possible for them to stop the swelling and believe me, they tried everything. Sedation was stopped on Tuesday and myself, Tony’s daughters, and my sons were asked to go and say our last goodbyes.
“Please pass on our gratitude for the overwhelming kind words of support from everyone in the community. The words have kept me going in the darkest of hours.”
