A 5-year-old boy tragically died when a mirror fell on him while he was visiting a department store with his mother.
Freddie Farrow from Essex was taken to a hospital with a severe head injury after a mirror fell on him in the Fenwick department store in Colchester High Street.
Essex Police confirmed the heartbreaking news that the young boy had passed away.
The news of Freddie’s passing left the entire community shaken and prompted outpouring support for his family.
His devastated mother, Natasha, described her son as an ‘amazing little boy’ who always made her laugh.
“We would both tell each other how much we loved each other, and then have a little kiss,” she expressed.
“Freddie would pick me daisies most days or whatever he could find, and give it to me. His love is endless and I am so lost without him now he is not here,” Natasha continued.
“I miss him so much; Freddie – you will always be with me wherever I go. Mummy and Freddie always went to the shops together because you always wanted to be with me.”
Natasha said that her son was a ‘clever boy’ and had been doing great at school.
“I know I gave Freddie the best life he could ever have asked for. Freddie’s comfort was my hair and even when he sat next to me, he would hold onto my hair and twiddle it round my fingers. I will miss that so much,” Natasha said.
“I could say so much more about Freddie, the speech would go on forever.
“Forever and always in my heart. Freddie will be missed but never forgotten and I will hold in my heart that beautiful smile of yours.”
Freddie’s heartbroken sister, Sophie, wrote a special poem titled ‘My Beloved Brother.’ It reads: “I am very lost for words; Fred Bear was my wingman, my superhero, best friend. We did everything together and was hardly ever apart.
“Seeing him every day with a beautiful smile on his face made me so happy.
“Love you Fred Bear. Goweee.”
