My beautiful son Kyle much loved, as loved as one could be, for you were everything in life you meant the world to me. Sometimes life can be unkind when hearts are torn in two but nothing ever could compare to the pain of losing you, but all the love you left behind forever will live on, so until we meet again rest peacefully my precious son.

– Mum Nikki Yule
