Lee Rigby's stepfather Ian read out a poem, a tribute to Lee from an unknown poster on a Facebook page, which read:
"You fought bravely and with honour died,
"You leave your family so full of pride,
"Sleep well young soldier, your job is done,
"Your war is over, your battle won.
"Our family chain is broken and nothing is the same,
"But as God takes us one by one,
"Our chain will link again."
