Although they were not together at the time of her death, he added, “You will always be my wife.”

Davis’s ex-boyfriend wrote on Instagram and recalled happy memories of the 21-year-old, including a ski trip and a vacation to Disneyland in Florida.
“I’m glad I have to do them all with you. Thank you for bringing me into your family … the funniest and best group of friends out there, “he said.
Mr. Dargue, a sales manager, posted several photos of the couple who happily smiled in front of the camera, including one in a striking dance pose in front of a wall of lilac roses.
The couple had lived together and shared a car, as well as glamorous vacations together.
He compared the ‘links, rights, ups and downs’ of their roller coaster relationship as a ‘cheat code’ with the video game Grand Theft Auto.
‘I love you all and I will always do that. And finally, thank you for always being yourself, a full-hearted, caring, loving, weirdo, “he said.
“My absolute favorite. We have not worked, but our friendship has and I will always remember the good times.
“I miss you a rotten girl, face …. You will always be my wife.”
In a separate message, he said the news about the death of his ex-girlfriend had “struck me like a ton of tomatoes.”
Mrs. Davis’ mother Rebecca Smith mocked online trolls because she “made her famous” while condemning the “nasty people” who attacked her daughter.
“My daughter was not obsessed with her, she was a very beautiful person who made a mistake. How can you write such things? She has a sister and a brother who read this, “said the British model’s mother.
‘Fill your boots, nasty people, you’re the ones [have] to sleep with yourself at night, “she said.
“Madalyn was loved, she had integrity and decency. If you have to believe differently to feel better about yourself, that’s your pain. I wish you the healing of whatever trauma you would suffer. ”
She added: “She always wanted to be famous, so thanks trolling, you make this possible.”
Mrs. Smith shared several photos of her daughter, calling her “my little weirdo,” and adding, “You were one in a million.”
Mrs. Smith has also posted several stories on her own Instagram in honor of her daughter

“What happened to Maddy was a mistake and no one should be blamed, especially she,” wrote her friend Meg Feather.
“Imagine how you would feel if you lost your daughter or your best friend or your sister and everyone said it was her own fault, please. Just think twice. “

Mrs. Feather also played a video on her Instagram about the trolls she said had let her cry for hours.
“You know what that will do to her family and her mother and her friends, I literally can’t believe it,” she said.
“People who don’t even know her say they deserve it. They know that all her family and friends must read it.
“Everyone would like to take a picture of that sunrise, it was just an accident.”
The young tourist arrived in Australia from Lincoln, England, at the end of last year and was planning to start a new life there.

She said: ‘They (Maddy’s parents) are outside themselves. One moment they laugh when they remember funny things about Maddy, the next they are in tears of tears. They are everywhere.
“They are still talking about who goes to Australia to identify the body. They are very early stages. It’s only been 24 hours since she died. ”
The young tourist was at a party in Vaucluse on Saturday night and went with seven friends to the nearby 30-meter Diamond Bay cliffs around 6:30 am.

NSW Police said emergency services were called to Diamond Bay Reserve after a woman fell off a cliff.

One witness told The Daily Telegraph the moment vigilant bystanders tried to resuscitate the woman while others helped her ailing friend, who had taken the picture.
“The girlfriend needed a few men to help her all the way up (the path),” they said.
Diamond Bay is a popular location for selfies, with countless photos with the #diamondbay tag on Instagram taken from the edge of the cliff.
The Waverley Council said last year that it would fall out loud against visitors risking their lives in Diamond Bay for the perfect photo.
Mayor Paula Masselos told The Daily Telegraph council was destroyed to learn about the last death.
Further talks begin on Monday about how to keep people away from the place.

“I have already asked the CEO and we have a meeting tomorrow to discuss it. It partly depends on what the police investigation reveals, “Mrs. Masselos said.
Security was increased around the lookout post in August after the 27-year-old’s death.
“Extra patrols, more signs, the fencing that we have also raised … when the rangers tell people not to go over border gates, they don’t listen, they go further down and go further down border gates,” Mrs. Masselos said.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Waverley Council for additional comments.
