"As soon as Ed walked into the room yesterday and spoke Ollie's eye lit up and a smile spread across his face. This image was priceless. Ed spent time with Ollie and gave him the biggest of cuddles..."
"To us, last night Ollie wasn't meeting a star he was meeting HIS star, he was meeting the man that taught him the power and love of music.
Our dying boy wished to meet his hero, last night that wish was granted ."
