The parents of 19 year-old Jake Gilmore have issued the following tribute to him:
Jake was a lad on the threshold of adulthood and anyone who met Jake could see on his face that he was open for whatever life had to offer. All he wanted was to spend time with his friends, and that was what he was doing when we lost him. He was happy.
We don't want to measure life by its length, but by its quality, and his friends are helping us do that.
Our lives changed on that Sunday and at the moment our hearts are heavy, but we will cherish the fabulous memories of our time with him.
