You made me the happiest girl - did everything for me, showed me love I never had. You always see stuff like this but you just never think it'll happen to you," she wrote, according to The Mirror.
"I can't believe I have to type this together struggling to speak never mind put a sentence together," she reportedly continued. "I'm gonna make you so so proud my Bill, my life, my angel."
