A heartbroken wife has penned a letter to her husband who took his final breath almost three years after their four-month-old daughter’s death.
David Campbell, a NSW police officer, died on May 8, a day before Mother’s Day, leaving behind his wife Michelle, their two daughters Harper and Meadow, and his stepson Cooper.
His death devastated his family who were still grieving of losing four-month-old Aspen in 2018.
In an open letter to David, Michelle described him as the ‘most gentle, loving and kind daddy’ and said she will miss him forever.
‘I never would have thought my heart would endure this much heartbreak in one lifetime,’ she wrote.
‘My heart is so heavy, so broken. I just can’t fathom how this is real, how you are no longer here on earth.’
Michelle said she was shocked by his sudden death and wished he could see how loved and missed he was already.
‘You and the kids are my whole world I don’t know how I will go on without you by my side, I know I will, have to for the kids but this is not the way it was suppose to be babe, we still had a lifetime together,’ she said.
‘I hope you are at peace now, I hope you have found our Aspen girl and are giving her the biggest hug. Cuddle her for me and tell her Mummy loves her.
‘I love you endlessly babe, I wish my love and the love of your girls could have kept you here with us.’
‘My heart will forever ache for you.’
Stacey Hollands, Michelle’s cousin, launched a GoFundMe page to help the family financially as she braces for the future without her husband.
The community rallied to support the family, with the fundraising campaign so far reaching $15,920 of its $100,000 goal.
Tributes have begun pouring in on social media for the father-of-three, who was remembered as a ‘beautiful’ person.
‘My heart is absolutely shattered for you. David was such a beautiful daddy, husband and friend. He will be truly missed. RIP Dave,’ one friend wrote on Michelle’s Instagram page.
‘My heart and soul is broken today. I never ever would have thought one family, one beautiful family could possibly endure so much heartache. I will treasure every single memory of him,’ another person wrote.
NSW Police told Daily Mail Australia it is offering support and welfare services to his family.
A report is being prepared for the coroner.
