Repatriation & funeral cost for Liam Smith

It breaks my heart to tell you all that Liam is no longer with us.

Liam has been suffering from Mental Health issues for many years, hiding it from his family and friends, and covering it up with a smile or a laugh, when he was deeply in pain. Liam decided he didn't want to suffer anymore and he wanted to be at peace. As much as its hurting me that he is not here, I just want to get him home, back where he belongs. 

I haven't got final figures yet for the funeral cost and getting him back home to his family & friends but anything you can contribute is appreciated. We just want him back to the UK asap so we can give him the send off he deserves.

I am not very good with words, but I can tell you he bought joy into so many people lives, and I don't know how I am going to cope without him.

If you want to write a comment below about Liam and maybe share some of your favourite moments with him, feel free.

I'll keep you posted with any arrangements for a service here in Australia and a formal funeral back in Manchester.

Anything you do or contribute will go a long way to put him to rest.

My last words are:  If you are in pain or dealing with depression or any mental disorders, please seek help. Be brave and Please talk about it, silence is not the answer. The pain it leaves behind is beyond words...
