Taksal Charity is tackling knife crime through education and campaigning

We loved Ben so very much – he was precious to us.

He is never far from our thoughts, in the wonderful artwork and writing that he left us, a piece of music, a glimpse at photos, seeing his friends. The memories are all there. We often talk about what he would be doing now, should be doing now and sometimes, when its quiet, the feelings of missing him overwhelms us like a tidal wave. We have learnt to cope with losing him. It’s part of grieving and the healing process. But it never really leaves you. We will miss him forever.
