It's with a heavy heart and awful sadness that I let you know that my beautiful husband John passed away last night.
As you all know, John has faced some tremendous challenges over the past few years and with each he has been extraordinarily brave and determined to overcome those hurdles and live a normal life.
I want to thank everyone at St Vincent's Hospital for the beautiful care they have provided to John in his last days.
John passed away peacefully with his son Simon and I by his side.
John, you were the love of my life.
