40yrs ago you were so cruely taken by the water.
I remember that day like it was yesterday, a 4yr old fascinated by all the police cars, police frogmen and hundreds of locals all out next to the water searching for you. Little did I realise what was really going on and the family tragedy that was unfolding in front of me.
I grew up always knowing you, you were forever in our hearts, your poor poor mum though took it the hardest and in all honesty, until the day she died, her heart broke that little bit more each day.
Today, hearing all the little tributes from your sister, I cried over you for the first time ever, maybe I was just too young way back then, who knows?? But, know 'N' that you were a much loved son/brother/nephew/grandson and cousin.
Forever and always in our hearts.
Your mum has at last found peace and been reunited with you.
R.I.P little big cuz. Love you always. XXXXXXXXXXXX
