“Archie was there for me in my lowest lows but my highest highs were with him.

“Archie’s my best friend and to say goodbye so soon is absolutely devastating, but his calling was obviously somewhere else and I hope he is brightening up wherever he is.

“To be honest, I still can’t find the words that do him justice and show how much of a beautiful soul he was, but his mission was to make as many people happy as he could and trust me, he really really did.

“Archie loved his friends and family so so dearly and we hope he knows how much he truly was loved.
