In the second part of an interview with ITV News, members of Lee Rigby's family say they believe his death has united the country.
Our reporter Mel Barham writes about meeting the family and friends of Fusilier Lee Rigby, and the stories they told her about him.
Fusilier Lee Rigby's killers wanted to become martyrs - but it is his name that will be remembered.
Colonel Jim Taylor, of 2nd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, had taken command just three weeks before Lee Rigby's death.
The first time he addressed his soldiers was to deliver the news of their comrade's murder.
He told ITV News correspondent Geraint Vincent that it was a "tragic set of circumstances and a brutal way to die."
He also said the Fusiliers "have become very resilient in their outlook in the way that they have dealt with deaths on operations...and to the tragic events - terrorist related - of Lee's death.
"It is a bitter experience for everyone to go through, regardless of how it happens," he added.
Sue Hemming, Head of Special Crime and Counter Terrorism at the CPS has called the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby "one of the most savage offences ever".
The Home Secretary Theresa May has spoken after the conviction of the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby.
Ms May said:
"The sickening and barbaric murder of Drummer Lee Rigby united the entire nation in condemnation and I welcome the jury's decision.
"But we must not forget that this appalling and public act of violence and terror also robbed his family and loved ones of a brave, young man with his life ahead of him. My thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
"Violence and extremism of any kind have absolutely no place in our society and cannot be justified. In the wake of Lee Rigby's murder, the Prime Minister set up the Extremism Task Force, which recently announced new measures to tackle extremism and radicalism across the UK.
"We have some of the toughest counter-terrorism laws in the democratic world and we are resolute in our determination to counter the threats to our way of life posed by extremist behaviour and ideologies."
Mr Justice Sweeney expressed his "gratitude and admiration" for Lee Rigby's family following the conviction of the two men responsible for his death.
Lee Rigby's family and friends have been in court almost every day listening to the harrowing evidence of what happened in the soldier's final moments.
He said they had "sat in court with great dignity throughout what must have been the most harrowing of evidence".
The judge added: "I'm extremely grateful to them and can only sympathise with what has happened to them and its continued effect ... upon all their lives."
The family of Lee Rigby have said "no amount of justice will bring Lee back".
Members of the Rigby family cried outside the Old Bailey as a statement was read by Detective Inspector Pete Sparks, following the convictions of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.
Trained first aider Vikki Cave went to help Fusilier Lee Rigby when she saw him lying on the Woolwich street and called the police.
Speaking to ITV News UK Editor Lucy Manning, she said: "It was a natural reaction to go and help and I didn't realise that they [Lee Rigby's killers] were there and when I did realise, that was a bit of 'Oh my god, it’s kind of scary’, especially when I saw the gun."
Ms Cave said a woman who was sitting beside the soldier rubbing his back was "so, so brave, absolutely amazing. If that was my son I'd want someone to be there. She was incredible."
"I spoke to the man and said: 'Is she ok, are we safe, are you going to hurt us?' And he said the women and children are safe but when your police and soldiers get here you need to back off as I can't guarantee anything."
Lee Rigby's family have said they are satisfied that justice has been done following the convictions of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.
A statement read: "This has been the toughest time of our lives. No one should have to go through what we have been through as a family."
The wife of murdered Fusilier Lee Rigby has said his memory will live on through their son and he will never be forgotten.
In a statement, Rebecca Rigby said: "I would like to thank everyone who has helped us to finally get justice for Lee.
"This has been the toughest time of our lives and no-one should have to go through what we have been through as a family.
"These people have taken away my baby's dad but Lee's memory lives on through our son and we will never forget him.
"I now want to build a future for Jack and make him proud of his dad like we all are."
