“I’ve never had to deal with such grief before, the first two days I was such a mess. I was just broken,” he said.

“Mommy is still her little creepy self and she’s been sending me these signs. I keep seeing her everywhere.

“Like the rainbow that was on my flight home this morning. I have never seen a rainbow when I was on a plane and this was my rainbow.

«I immediately smiled and said, ‘Mum’ and then I had a little chat with her on the plane and it’s things like that that calm me down and I know I’m not in pain anymore.»

“On the plane this morning the Virgin girls wrote me a letter and gave me some snacks.

“I literally take this week as self-care week. I do a double cleansing of the body. I take big long showers and go on hot girl walks.

«I’ve never been through anything like that — so I just try to surround myself with people who make me happy and do things that make me happy.»
