He went on: “So caring, so funny, and so delicious to be around, that I find it hard to imagine a world without her shining presence and smiling face.
“My heart goes out to all who knew and loved her (all one million of you). Let’s all raise a glass to her this evening as one and offer a final toast and a fond farewell in her memory.”
