Harry’s family said: “Harry fills a huge part of each and every day. Our life now embraces the many fun, happy memories we had together as a family. He was so beautiful, kind and funny and we feel so blessed to have shared his life.

“Our grief and pain doesn’t get easier a year on. Our grief and pain is growing and mirrors the love we will always have for our precious boy. The love, compassion and support of our amazing friends and family is helping us navigate this horrendous journey without Harry.”
