‘It was only the night before the accident you were having a rough week and I held you while you were crying on my shoulder,’ she wrote on Instagram. 

‘If I knew that was the last time I’d see you I would have never let go.

‘You forever had my back, if someone said one bad word about me you were there standing up for me, you told me if something ever happened you’ll make sure the boys will look after me.

‘It breaks my heart to know that won’t be happening anymore, you were honestly such a blessing in my life Cohn and I’m so glad I got to spend your last weekend here with you.

‘I know you’ll be looking down on me and I’ll continue to make you proud and run an absolute muck for you cause all you ever wanted was for me to be happy.’
