His (diamond) iPad was his security blanket, it accompanied him everywhere.”
The statement went on to say, “Everyone who knew Ifan fell in love with him, everyone adored him. He was and always will be our special boy. We are so lost without him, Ifan was our world. We are all truly heartbroken,” before adding: “We as a family are truly overwhelmed with the support, kindness and generosity we have received from our family, friends, local community and even people we don’t even know.
