Floral tributes lined an Ipswich funeral home on the morning of a service in memory of Ipswich teenager Tavis Spencer-Aitkens.
Rows of heartfelt messages for the 17-year-old were displayed at Michael Smy Funeral Directors ahead of the service at St Augustine’s Church on Wednesday.
One tribute to Tavis, known by the nickname ‘Biggz’, who died from a stab wound after being attacked by a group of males in Packard Avenue on June 2, read: “Goodbyes hurt the most when the story was not finished.”
Another read: “The day you died changed my life, Biggz.
“I swear all these sunny days have been grey.”
