Tributes paid to popular ‘wee man’

TRIBUTES to Daniel Lennon have been pouring in on the Lurgan Mail Facebook pages and on the youngster’s own Facebook page.

Daniel will be dearly missed by his friends, particularly those he went to school with at Lurgan Junior High and at King’s Park. Here’s what some of his friends had to say on his Facebook page:

“RIP wee man. Sitting here thinking about you and your family. Still remember your birthday. That was amazing the craic we had. You’re going to be missed wee man. Love you. GBNF (Gone But Not Forgotten).”

“RIP wee man. I will never forget our times out. You were someone that I thought a lot of! I will miss you wee man! God only takes the best! Prayers are with your family! GBNF.”

“God really does take the best! Daniel Lennon was one of the most nicest wee fellas you will ever meet! He put others and their problems before his ‘cause he was cool like that. Just wish he was here to read all these comments so he will know he was loved by so many! Heart of gold wee man! Prayers go out to your family! Love you.”

“Rest your wee head babe. Do me a favour and keep me a space up there babe. Not just any space, one right beside you babe. You were one in a billion babe, nobody will ever take your place! Love you forever and ever!”

“You’re making my eyes sore, all this crying, mate. It’s not going to be the same without you! You got a send off fit for a king, just what you deserved! You’ll always be in my prayers no matter what! Love you big man!”

“Never think I’ve missed a boy this much in my whole entire life. Daniel Lennon you are the most beautiful boy in the whole world. Wish it’s all just a bad dream and I wake up one night and see it’s all fake. I’m not gonna say goodbye because it sounds like I’m never gonna see you again I’m just going to say see you soon, you were like a big brother for me. I always had your back and I always was there for you. Miss you loads.”
