A widow has penned a letter to her husband following his death two years after also losing their daughter.

Michelle Campbell, from Penrith in Sydney’s west, lost her husband, David, on May 8 leaving behind three children Harper, Meadow and Cooper.

According to a GoFundMe page, created by Ms Campbell’s cousin Stacey Hollands, Mr Campbell’s death comes two years after the pair lost their daughter, Aspen, who was four months old.

In a note from Ms Campbell, shared by her cousin on the page, the mum wrote how she never thought she would “endure this much heartbreak in one lifetime”.

“My heart is so heavy, so broken my beautiful, sweet husband and the most gentle, loving and kind daddy to our three girls passed away,” she wrote.

“I just can’t fathom how this is real, how you are no longer here on earth, I wish you could see how loved you are, how missed you already are.

“You and the kids are my whole world. I don’t know how I will go on without you by my side. I know I will have to for the kids but this is not the way it was supposed to be, babe. We still had a lifetime together.

“I hope you are at peace now, I hope you have found our Aspen girl and are giving her the biggest hug, cuddling her for me and telling her mummy loves her."

Ms Hollands wrote her cousin was "the most sweetest and kind hearted soul who would be there for anyone in a heartbeat”.

It’s not immediately clear how Mr Campbell died. He was a member of NSW Police.

A report is being prepared for the coroner.
