Taking to X, formerly Twitter, Victoria shared a minute-long video of Shane singing.

In the caption of the post, she wrote: “I feel like an absolute blubbering wreck today and it’s not even Valentine’s yet!”

Someone else tweeted: “Oh this is beautiful Victoria. You know he would want you to smile again, however difficult.”

Another person added: “Bless you … I can only imagine how hard it is for you, I am sure his love and strength will surround you … if anyone can break that wall between heaven and earth, I’m damn sure it’ll be him”.

Someone else said: “What a fantastic video, he was a pure delight and what a team you were. There will be more sad days ahead, let the tears flow and take each day as it comes.

“Grief is a bit of a bugger but Shane is walking with you every step of the way.”

Shane had been receiving treatment for viral encephalitis – a serious condition which leads to brain swelling.

Devastated Victoria Mary confirmed he died at 3am on November 30 and paid emotional tribute to her “beautiful angel”.

‘Measure of my dreams’

She said: “I don’t know how to say this so I am just going to say it.

“Shane who will always be the light that I hold before me and the measure of my dreams and the love of my life and the most beautiful soul and beautiful angel and the sun and the moon and the start and end of everything that I hold dear has gone to be with Jesus and Mary and his beautiful mother Therese.

“I am blessed beyond words to have met him and to have loved him and to have been so endlessly and unconditionally loved by him and to have had so many years of life and love and joy and fun and laughter and so many adventures.

“There’s no way to describe the loss that I am feeling and the longing for just one more of his smiles that lit up my world.

“Thank you thank you thank you thank you for your presence in this world you made it so very bright and you gave so much joy to so many people with your heart and soul and your music.

“You will live in my heart forever. Rave on in the garden all wet with rain that you loved so much. You meant the world to me.”

He had been rushed to hospital as his wife Victoria Mary Clarke stayed by his side.

The singer remained in good spirits throughout his treatment, which included being put on a breathing apparatus, and was sent home.
