This was taken a few hours before Con died

My Son Connor was the youngest of four he was 21 when a 46 year old man put a knife into his chest and killed him 6th June 2010 . Connor was just starting his adult life he had a fiancée a step daughter and a daughter of his own who turned 1 on the 2nd June 2010 4 days before he lost his life. From the minute Connor lost his life my life changed I lost part of myself I will never be the same person but I have learnt to live without my son, not a day goes by where I don't think talk about my son. I have an amazing family and without them I don't think I would have got through this. to the man who murdered my son I don't feel nothing people can not understand why I don't hate him or want something bad to happen to him but you know what I have no feelings for him not even hate he took to much from me and I am not letting him have anything else from me not a feeling

Yvonne I am so very sorry for your loss of your dearest son Connor from a senseless knife attack. Living in the U.K. I remember the news report and how I felt seeing Connor on the TV and feeling angry and upset, and praying for you and your family to receive strength and comfort in your loss. I am always saddened and upset at every loss of a child/adult child or any individual who is murdered.
Every day we are being bombarded with knife crime and loss of life so much so our Prime Minister has got involved and the actress Brook Kinsella has taken it upon herself to become an ambassador and voice to speak out on behalf of knife crime since she also lost her precious brother to knife crime. She is now working with people like yourself. I am so sorry for your loss and I can understand your feelings towards the perpetrator. Not giving him your time or thoughts is the best way forward. Your energies lie with your son Connor and how you move forward each day. Again I am so sorry for your immense loss of a dear precious son.
