Patti Newton reveals she is still heartbroken over Bert's death

Patti Newton laid her husband Bert to rest last month.

And on Wednesday, she shared her gratitude for the continuing messages of love and support being sent to her following her TV icon husband’s passing.

The 76-year-old posted a photo of Bert hugging their four adorable grandchildren – the children of their daughter Lauren and her former Olympian husband Matt Welsh.

Patti wrote in the caption: ‘The love that has been shown to Bert, from messages, thousands of cards, letters has been overwhelming. 

‘We just want to say, “Thank You”, she wrote on behalf of her family.

She revealed: ‘The empty hole and heartbreak I feel is enormous, I think I just loved him too much. Thank you again, he’d be so thrilled.’

Her heartfelt message was met with support from high profile friends including Alex Fevola who commented: ‘Sending love.’

Danielle Spencer, the ex-wife of Russell Crowe, wrote: ‘Must be so tough Patti. Sending you lots and lots of love.’

Bert tragically passed away on October 30 at age 83.

Patti told Daily Mail Australia at the time that it was a result of ‘complications with everything’.

‘When you have a leg amputated you have to be on a lot of painkillers and Bert had had, just this year alone, he’s had eight procedures, which all involved anaesthetics and that affects you pretty badly,’ she said.

The TV legend was given a Victorian state funeral on November 12 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne.
