I was looking for words of comfort while thinking about my own son, Tyler Nichols, who died on June 21, 2008, and came across the poem written by Rhys' father. I was so touched. My son was an American high school football player and played on the state championship team of 2007. Our community lost another football player a few years earlier whose name was Kale Powell. Last year we lost a coach, Jared Pierce, who coached all of my boys. All in one little community, Guthrie, Oklahoma, America. They are not the only losses, but I just wanted to say that the team is nearly complete. Whether it's America or UK, God must have needed his own team. May God bless and keep the Jones family and those who have lost children. Now we are all in the same, unfortunate, club together.

I was in Manchester when this horror unfolded. I'm just a Stewardess from America, but I hurt so much for his family at this time. His picture goes with me all the time, and I think of him often; Especially when I don my Everton jersey to cheer the Toffees!!! I love you baby boy!!

God bless this family and may they find who murdered this poor little soul.Children are being murdered more and more every day and if it ain't abuse it's gang related violence.Why do people have to be so dam cruel in this world?The parents of the murder was obviously not raising thier child right and it led him to commit a crime on an innocent child.God bless with lots of love and you will always be in my heart and prayers.

My heart goes out to the parents,family and friends of Rhys Jones. May he find peace in his new home in Heaven til those who loved him meet again. Without adoubt you left this world way to soon. You still had alot of living to do. And so much more that you wanted to do in your short young life on earth. You left behind alot of empty spaces in alot of hearts that love you. All thats left is alot of empty spaces where your love touched alot of souls. Thou you are gone you will never be forgotten by many near and far. R.I.P little Angel Rhys Jones

Like the Jones's family my child was also murdered.The man who did this truly awful thing is now in prison.My child, Jenny, like Rhys, was just an innocent going about her very ordinary life when she was murdered and her body dumped somewhere we still do not know. I to and my family live with the loss everyday, Having been the thru the ordeal and a trial it is the worst loss you can imagine.Losing the person is terrible but knowing someone else has taken there life is far far worse. The greiving process will happen and many of your thoughts will change over the years. If I can offer any words of comfort I hope these words will help. Just because your child has gone you will never ever stop loving them.They are always ,always part of your family. Know one else will ever be Rhy's parent,except you. Try,if at all possible to keep alive all the wonderful memories you have of your sweet boy and spend as little time leting the murderer get into your mind or hearts. Accept all the offers of help and be kind to yourselves. I watched your story unfold on TV and I was so disgusted and angry at how long it took to catch the culprit.I know that you are a loving ,strong , decent family . Be strong. You are a good family who never ever deserved this too happen . God blessxxx

How tragic you had to leave so soon. I know that you are in heaven and you have been given angel wings. I will pray for your family. I can't imagine the pain and emptiness they must feel. I have only one child, a son, but I do have two beautiful grandchildren. A grandson and a granddaughter. I pray the "cowardly mean spirited" person will be found and receive just punishment for taking your life. You are a handsome young man and I can see you running through heaven with a big smiles on your face.

I have followed this story from the very beginning, and my heart is with you. Your wonderful boy deserved so much more than this travesty of 'justice' which I read today. May you find smiles again one day in your loving memories of him. Bless you for being so strong, and sending a message to us all for strength, every time you speak. Please know that your story has touched people all over the world, and my only wish, as yours is, is that we didn't ever have to know this story. He was so lucky to have you as parents; that is obvious to all. His brief life was a truly beautiful one. Best of everything to you and your family, going forward. Joan from Montreal

My Mum was a single parent, and i was brought up to respect others and thats exactly what i do. People today have NO RESPECT for anyone and its very sad. And its an even sadder world we live in today that people have to wallk around with guns and knives. Im really concered for the future. And to take away such an innocent life when you have your whole life ahead of you Rhys. It breaks my heart it really does. All we hear on the news is storys of young kids being stabbed or gunned down and its not right. We will never forget you Rhys you will always be in our thoughts and hearts. Rest in peace beautiful little man..Laura x x x x x
