RELATIVES of a Holbrook High School pupil who was found dead at his home have spoken of the pride and love they felt for him.

Tyler Mison, 13, from Shotley Gate, was found hanging on September 6, but his family have not been able to express their feelings over the loss until today.

They said: “It's now been five weeks since you left us and we still can't get to grips with the fact that you are never coming back.

“When you died a huge part of us died with you. The house is so empty and quiet without you, to say you were the life and soul of our home is an understatement.

“We all miss your cheeky smile, the amazing sparkle in your eyes and the love and laughter you gave us. We would give anything to have you back arguing with us.

“You were the kind of boy who would wear your heart on your sleeve and would go out of your way to make others laugh and to feel good about themselves.

“We can't tell you how proud we are of you when we are told what a polite and lovely boy you were, to us you were just our Tyler, loving and so annoying at times.

“A huge hole has been left in our hearts that shall never be filled but with that are the memories that we share about you and the happiness you brought.

“You touched the hearts of so many and shall be deeply missed by all.

“Rest in peace Titch. Love always, and forever in our hearts, Mummy Daddy and siblings.”

The Mison family also wanted to thank The Rose football club, and friends and neighbours for the flowers, cards and cuddly toys left in the memory of Tyler.

They also expressed their gratitude to the paramedics, hospital and police staff for the delicate and caring way they have dealt with the Mison family.

Their final thank you was to relatives for all their constant love and support, and to Detective Chief Inspector Stuart McCallum, of Suffolk Constabulary, for all his help and support.
