“I’m so proud that I was someone you thought you could trust and talk about anywhere, anytime.

“And I’m going to try my best to be the person you and I talked about. I’m going to try to do this for us for all the good things we said and the positive conversations we had, you were an absolute star, a nugget.

“I feel very lucky to have you as a friend, you were the girl everyone wanted to be friends with and be in your corner on a night out. We would always have so much fun.

“I know this will be hard for everyone to come to terms with, but all I can say is I’ll try to speak your messages, I’ll try to live by all the things we talked about and I’ll try to be your voice and am the best person i can be to you. Caroline I was so proud to be your friend, you were our girl! ‘
