"I love you so much Llŷr. The kindest and most caring soul. I was so proud of you starting medical school next month, you would have been the most incredible doctor.
"We are hurting so bad. No words can explain. As a family we are devastated. We love you and miss you so much. Please rest in peace x Our boy."
Llŷr, who was training to become a doctor, is believed to have been 19 at the time of his death.

He recently revealed he had split from girlfriend Amelia Bath, who he had been dating since December 2018.
"Guys just want to let you know, Amelia and I have decided to go our separate ways," he said in a statement.
"As you know, we've been apart for most of lockdown which has been hard on us both and we both agree this is for the best.
"We will remain good friends and I have nothing but respect for Amelia. Thank you for the love and support always."
We're thinking of Dr Alex at this difficult time.
