Today, Bernadette Greenidge is nursing a broken heart. Her soulmate of 14 years, and fiancé, Stephen Small died on Friday after being robbed and stabbed the previous day.

“I can’t tell you how I feel. I haven’t got that feeling yet. To me, it’s still like a dream and I’m still just hoping,” a visibly shaken Greenidge told the Sunday Sun yesterday at the couple’s home in Henley, St John.

“Everyone loved him . . . we still do. He’s like a dad, granddad. He was my best friend; he was my everything,” she later added.

Bolstered by her supportive family, Greenidge said she met Small more than 18 years ago and was instantly smitten.

Over the years, their growing friendship flourished into a relationship. (AD)
