'They loved one another so much, and I know how he waited until she left the room to take his last breath, because while she was with him, he couldn't have gone.'

She added: 'My beautiful dad will be with us forever in our hearts and memories. But life will never be the same without him. I love you, Dad.'

Earlier this month, Patti, 76, revealed she had missed being by Bert's side as he died by mere minutes.
