Sophie Gradon’s boyfriend Aaron Armstrong has shared an emotional tribute to his tragic love.
Just days after he found her lifeless body, Aaron opened up on Instagram about the way Sophie’s beautiful smile “haunts” him.
“To think I will never see your beautiful smile again haunts me,” he wrote.
Earlier this week pals claimed Sophie, 32, was ready to settle down with her boyfriend – and Aaron is devastated by their lost future.
“You are the girl of my dreams we spoke of having kids and spending the rest of our lives together,” he continued.
He added: “I’m so devastated that we will never get that chance to grow old together and raise a family.
“I love you will all my heart Sophie u will always be in my heart you are my angel and I know that you will be by my side everyday.”
Sophie’s mum Debbie and her dad were told soon after Aaron found Sophie’s body and are “understandably devastated”, said a friend, especially as she had recently made changes in her life.
“Sophie had wanted to settle down and was growing sick of the party lifestyle,” they added.
Earlier this week, sharing a tender last picture of them together, Aaron wrote: “I will never forget that smile I love you so so much baby your my world forever ever and always”
The 32-year-old had been struggling with financial problems of late, said a mate, although she was careful not to give away anything about it in public.
She’d also been rocked by the death of good friend Paul Burns earlier this month and was at his funeral last Friday.
