"You nurtured me and helped me see light. You sprayed my feet when they were stinking out the house. All you did was care about the people you loved."
Max added: "When things got bad, we'd cuddle each other on that sofa in Marylebone like two toddlers, and tell each other we've got this. You battled everything, daily, and won. And this time this c**t of a virus got you.
"But you still fought. I don't know a life without you. I don’t want a life without you.
"But I know you'll be with me. You made my family feel like they were the only people in the world. I will never forget when you ran down the red carpet at the NTAs to make my Nan feel like a queen.
"The last messages we sent each other before you fell ill, were that we loved each other. And I always will Tel. Thank you for everything you gave me. My life will never be the same. Sleep well, my wonderful friend."
Former Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand and Hollywood star Olivia Newton-John donated items to be auctioned off in aid of Terry's treatment.
