A tribute from Charlie Girling's family
'We are so saddened at the loss of our lovely son, Charlie. He was much loved by us and his brother and sister. We have been overwhelmed by the lovely messages that we have received about Charlie, and how much he was loved by his friends and those who knew him. Although Charlie’s life was short, he lived life to the full, and we are so sad that he will never fulfil all his dreams.
He was a keen footballer, did well at school and enjoyed Scouts and we are so proud of all that he achieved. We will miss his cheeky smile, floppy hair and our goodnight cuddles.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their care, to everyone at Roihu who could not have done more for Charlie and then looked after us so well since, and to the leaders of 1st Aylesford Scout Group and the wider Scouting family for all their help and support.'
Helene, Les, Abby and Jack Girling
