The family of a 10-year-old boy who sadly died following a road traffic collision on Abingdon Road in Liverpool have today (Saturday 22 April) issued tributes and photographs.
Charlie Lowe died in hospital following the collision on the evening of Thursday 20 April.
Charlie’s mother said, “Football mad, Charlie was taken away suddenly and we will always miss him. He was a huge LFC fan and knew everything about the team.
“He was also a keen cross-country runner. He was exceptionally happy, very smart and very funny. Charlie loved school and loved life and he will be sorely missed by everyone.
Charlie’s dad said, “There isn’t a word to describe how amazing and loved you are and how missed you will be. The most beautiful boy in the world.
“When you arrived I had to split my heart between you and your brother Daniel, sister Rachael and brother Bobby. I never knew for certain what real love was but I did when my amazing children entered my life.
“I will always cherish the short time I had with you, the hugs and kisses and laughs we had. The days out, you playing football and on Fifa.
“When I heard the tragic news, I came running to the hospital praying for a miracle.
“Charlie, I miss you mate so much it’s killing me inside as it is for your brothers and sister. All my love Charlie, I hope you rest in peace, Dad.”
