A woman in the United Kingdom, is devastated over the loss of her husband, who was her best friend.

27-year-old Cloe Green of North Wales, was left to raise her eight children on her own after she lost her husband just after their eighth child was born.

Cloe met her husband James, when they were teenagers. She was only 17 years old when she became pregnant with her first child.

Cloe said that James, who was 4 years older than her, loved to be a father and he wanted a large family.

She said that James was an amazing father and husband, who worked, took the children to school and picked them up everyday, despite working many hours to financially support the family in order not to take government assistance.

One night, James woke up and was not feeling well. He was rushed to a hospital, but he died of hypertensive heart disease.

Cloe started a GoFundMe page to finish her yard, which her husband started, so that her children have a safe place to play in.

On GoFundMe she wrote: “Becoming the only parent of eight children at such a young age when some of my friends are still partying and not even thinking of settling down, is daunting.

“In my darkest moments, I wondered how on earth I would do this without James. I felt lost, but I had to do it. I love my kids so much, I know I can do a great job for them in my husband's honor.”
