“It would have been just 24 days ago that we would have celebrated your 16th birthday, just days ago we picked up your car…. we have plans ahead, so many fun things and then it all changed in the blink of an eye when our amazing boy Liam Grant passed away.’

She added: “Tell us it’s not true. Wake us up from this hellish tormenting place, to which I have nothing more to say.’

Liam was promoted to the rank of cadet sergeant last July after a nine-day intensive training course.

On December 30, his parents surprised him with his first car.

His final Instagram post came two days later, when he shared pictures with his classmates and expressed his gratitude for ‘all the friends I’ve made along the way’.

A GoFundMe page set up by a family friend to raise funds to cover his funeral, memorial services and other expenses has raised more than $19,000 so far.
