Drew Carrey mourns his ex-fiance Amie Harwick who tragically passed away on Feb.15 on falling from a three-story building. Her ex-boyfriend Gareth Pursehouse, who was arrested and charged with murder, has been accused of strangling her before the fatal fall, according to a news portal.
Carey paid a heartfelt tribute to his ex-fiance on his popular radio show Drew Carey’s Friday Night Freak-Out.
“Back in September 2018, I was in a beautiful, great, best relationship of my life with a woman named Amie Harwick,” Carey said in the show, according to a news portal.
He further added: “She was a sex therapist and mental health advocate. She had a Ph.D. and a master’s degree, and she was beautiful and fun, and cared deeply about people and improving their lives and was just a joy to be around. I was so in love with her.”
Carey also recalled making a specific setlist in for Harwick.
“This one week I said, ‘Hey I made a set for you.’ And she said, ‘Oh really?’ and I said, ‘Yeah.’ I played it for her and she teared up,” he reminisced. “We would sing the words in each other’s ears. We would hold each other and dance in the kitchen to it and slow dance in the bathroom to it, and the office, living room or where we were. I would hold her and we would hold hands in the car and listen to it. We would sing to each other.”
Carey further explained how important those songs were to Harwick and him. “All these songs were so important to us and I want to play them for you, so you can hear how much we loved each other through these songs,” he said.
“I just want to say, I’m so broken up. Even after we broke up, we still loved each other very much. Even though we broke up the engagement, I was still so in love with her. And she loved me back,” he continued.
“I could never hear these songs again without thinking of her so this next set is for Amie Harwick, a beautiful person who didn’t deserve to die like she did. I loved her very much,” added Carey before playing Harwick and his favourite tracks.
Carey also took the opportunity to announce a hiatus after being shaken up by the tragic news.
“I might take a couple weeks off because I’m in really no position to work or entertain anybody right now but I wanted to get this set out there for her and just put it out there how I loved her,” he said.
According to a news portal the songs played were: Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons’ “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” The “5” Royales’ “Dedicated to the One I Love,” Rascals’ “A Girl Like You,” Herman’s Hermits’ “I’m Into Something Good,” Three Dog Night’s “Old Fashioned Love Song” and The Damned’s “New Rose.”
