HE was a boy with a life of hopes and dreams ahead of him.

Zak Hockley Brown's young life was marked with the tragic deaths of his parents but, under the loving guidance of his grandmother Gina Lisher, he still had so much to live for.

Yet today Mrs Lisher, who had already lost two sons at young ages, is left with only the memories of her bright grandson who died after being stabbed in Stowupland.

In the wake of his funeral in Ipswich, she told of her pain over the 21-year-old's death.

Speaking from her Ipswich home for the first time since the tragedy, Mrs Lisher said today: “The whole family has taken his death really badly - he was so young.

“This has left a huge hole in my life. He will be very sadly missed by a lot of people.”
