I would like to tell you my story.
My son kyle was killed on 21st June 2013 in Dartford Kent, he was 18 years old,while crossing the Road after a night out with friends. It was 4am and light as kyle and his friend went to cross the road, using a crossing (they didn't press the button to change the lights to red from green) and crossed the road, as it was 4am there wasn't much traffic on the road. They stepped into the road at the same time a land rover was coming towards them, the driver admits later he saw the boys crossing the road but he made no effort to slow down he moved lanes at the last minute( it was a dual carriageway speed 40 miles a hour) as the car was coming towards them kyle pushed his friend out of the way and kyle took the whole impact of the car he died instantly. The driver was not charged with his death. In my eyes my son is a hero and always will be for saving his friends life. Hes a true legend. He was cremated as his dad and I were separated and I took half of his ashes back to Carlisle cumbria where I live, (kyle and his brothers lived here, as I moved them up to my home town after running away from their dad in 2002, after abuse. They went down for a break and their dad wouldn't give me them back, we went to court and as the boys wanted to stay in Kent to live with their dad in 2007, I made that choice what my boys wanted they got as they came first and I had to let them go).I feel that the time is right for kyle to be placed into a grave. I would be forever greatful if people could help me acheive this as I'm a single parent I have saved up so much I just need a bit of help to give him a permanent place to rest. any donation is welcomed, no matter how big or small! Thank you so much
