The past nine months have been a very sad and emotional time for our family. The shock of having both Pat and Bob taken from us in such horrifying and tragic circumstances has left us feeling numb.
Pat and Bob were a kind, loving and selfless couple who will be missed by their family and friends and especially their grandson Daniel, whom they cared for with great love and affection.
The family would like to take this opportunity to thank Greater Manchester Police for their dedication and effort in the case, also the legal team for their hard work and expertise.
We would like to now be left in peace to mourn the deaths of Pat and Bob and be allowed to remember them as the loving couple that they were.
