Ms Antoine wrote: “There are no words adequate enough to honour the beautiful soul that is Steven Weber Jr.

“You never emerged from those depths so you never got to hear my answer, “Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!
“We never got to embrace and celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together, as the best day of our lives turned into the worst, in the cruellest twist of fate imaginable.
“I will try to take solace in the fact that we enjoyed the most amazing bucket list experiences these past few days, and that we both were so happy and absolutely giddy with excitement in our final moments together.”
