Darren Pyper tribute…

Darren Pyper's Awareness DayOn the 19th September 2007 a 14 year old boy, Darren Pyper, was tragicly taken from us through knife crime.

4 years on and it just doesn’t seem to get any easier…

I went to Darren’s grave with Sarah and her wee boy Jack and I took Kiera. We lay down a bunch of flowers and stood in silence for a moment. Every time I go up there it doesn’t feel real and you’re always told it will get easier. But honestly, it doesn’t. You just get better at acting like everything’s fine.

Darren was the first friend of mine that I lost when I was 16. On his 15th birthday we decided to hold an Anti-Knife campagin in memory and held it on the 20th September 2008. You can read about it here http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/glasgow_and_west/7625241.stm

His mum, Margo, became like a mum to me as well. My mum had been ill with depression since I was 12 and Margo and me became very close.

 Darren,
You will never be forgotten, you are in my thoughts everyday.
Love Always xx
