It was a nightmare come true for one mum who explained the heartbreaking moment she found her 11-year-old son dead in his bed.
Kimberley Shepherd explains her utter heartbreak and sheer disbelief when she found her young son lying dead in his bed. The mum explained how she entered his room as per normal routine to wake up him for his school. But little did she know that he had already left the world.
Describing her son as an uberly caring and very sporty individual, she also spoke about how he was her only child too. Moreover, the fact that he mysteriously died in his sleep still has the mum in absolute awe. The incident reportedly took place at the family’s home which is situated in Somerset’s Weston-super-Mare.
“He was the only reason I woke up every single day. It’s so hard for me to think of a life that’s away from him. He was just like my soul mate and I called him the love of my life.” Kimberley and Liam were alone as she explained the struggles of raising him alone as a single mum.
For this reason, the grief-stricken mum claims she has nothing else to look forward to in the world after his departure as he was her everything.
“I just don’t think I can get through any major milestones in my life without him,” she tried to explain.The mum spoke about his kind-hearted nature and his strive to help those in need. And if that meant participating in charity events and marathons, then so be it.
The mum then started to speak about how little Liam had so many caring friends and loved ones and enjoyed his presence. “He was just so popular and it’s hard to imagine how he no longer exists,” she added.
Liam just passed away in his sleep and the exact reason is still unknown yet very mysterious. Today, locals continue to remember him and his great character by placing gold ribbons as well as badges around the entire town in Liam’s memory.
