She added: "He was just the best man I've ever known in my life, and he was just so kind and so wonderful and everybody that was in his life and knew it. And anybody that would just casually meet him was like 'Wow, this is a special guy.'"

Earlier this week, she paid tribute to him on Instagram.

Sharing a picture, she said that she is trying not to think that she was "robbed of time", but rather to think about how she was "lucky" to be married to "the most incredible man on Earth".

She wrote: "We had that time to make each other the happiest we’d ever been and change each other’s lives forever. I got to be the one to love him and cherish him. He deserves all the love. Every ounce of it. Because that’s how amazing Bob was. He was love."
