The family of a woman from Blackwood killed in the terror attacks in Tunisia last week have paid tribute to a caring person, who was always willing to help others.
Although formal identification has yet to take place, it's believed 51-year-old Trudy Joneswas among the 38 people who died following the attack by gunman Seifeddine Rezgui on Friday.
Ms Jones family have released the following through their family liaison officer:
“Our mother of all people didn’t deserve this, such a caring person who put everyone else before herself. Always willing to help others, she loved everyone around her including all of the people she cared for at work. She’ll be missed by so many people. She was the rock of our family and kept us all going. None of us have a clue how we’re going to cope without her. We are all devastated and would appreciate if everyone can respect our privacy. Please leave us grieve our beautiful mother”.
Elsewhere Matthew James, a 30-year-old man from Trehafod, has returned home and is recovering in hospital after being shot three times whilst trying to protect his girlfriend from the gunman.
Mourners gathered in Blackwood for the funeral of Trudy Jones who was killed after a gunman opened fire on a Tunisian beach resort.
