Husband: Royal nurse was 'the light in my darkness'

The husband of royal nurse Jacintha Saldanha has paid tribute to her in the order of service:

My wife, you were the light in my darkness, who always showed me the way forward. From the day we met, you always stood by me in times of hardship and happiness.

I feel a part of me has been ripped out. Without your beautiful smile and sparkling personality, the house is an empty place to live.

19 years of togetherness with a strong bond of affection and understanding will be cherished forever in my life. Your loss is a very painful one and nobody can take that place in my life ever again. I love you and miss you forever.
