He had his 8-month-old son in his arms, told him "I love you" and passed away
The 42-year-old father died in his sleep
Mike Hollingworth, a father of 4, managed to live with his son Sonnie for only 8 months. The 42-year-old DJ from Grimsby, Great Britain, had his baby in his arms, kissed him goodnight, told him I love him and lay down to sleep.
The 42-year-old father never woke up. He died peacefully in his sleep, as revealed by his partner Hollie Bridgewater, unable to believe that her man is no longer alive.
The only thing that relieves her, as she says, according to the Mirror, is the fact that the last person she held in his arms was their son Sonnie and he will live forever through their angel.
"She was next to me. He died peacefully. It did not hurt. He told me that he loves me and not to worry. The last person he hugged was Sonnie and that comforts me. My heart aches because Sonnie is so small. He will miss his first birthday, his first Christmas. This is painful. We will remember him forever. Sonnie is his ultimate savior. It looks incredible to him. "I have Mike through Sonnie," said the girl, devastated by his sudden loss. She fights to be strong for the children.
His death is a huge shock to Hollie who is still trying to come to terms with the tragedy that knocked on their door unexpectedly.
"I will never be the same again. I'm still waiting for him to surprise me… ".
