”I found out yesterday afternoon, my partner saw it on Facebook.
”She was just always smiling and laughing and had such a good sense of humour and she was a brilliant mum. I felt I had to come up, we’ve only known each other for 18 months but we used to spend a lot of time together in the school holidays.
”It’s so sad.”
