Heartbroken Sheffield dad Ian Winslow said he has been "overwhelmed" by the messages of support following the death of his beloved partner Kelly Brewster.
Ian's world was shattered on Monday night when 32-year-old Kelly was killed in a bomb blast outside the Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande gig.
The 36-year-old was forced to take to Facebook to confirm the news that his sweetheart was one of the 22 people who was killed in the attack.
Hundreds of comments have now been left on the status which described Kelly as the "happiest she has ever been" prior to the tragedy.
A heartbroken Ian posted again on Facebook on Thursday to say he has read "every single message" that has been posted to him and his family since the "tragic news".
He said: "I'm not a man of many words on Facebook but I just want to say I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the messages of condolence and support myself and my family have received over the last few days since the tragic news of my partner, Kelly Brewster 's passing.
"I haven't had the time to acknowledge everyone but I can promise you I have read every single message either posted on Facebook, sent via text or emailed to my personal or work account.
"Also want to mention David Booth - the owner of RSC New Homes my employer, his wife Belinda and friend Mike who took it upon themselves to get to the hospitals in the surrounding area in a desperate search for Kelly on Tuesday.
"As Kelly would have said, Love you loads."
Ian spoke exclusively to the Star on Friday and, in an emotional interview, said that he "just wants to hold and kiss her again".
He added that his seven-year-old daughter kissed the TV screen with Kelly's picture on it after she was told the tragic news.
