Rhys Jones, Evertonian

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There’s one team
Playing with ten men
There’s a mother
Who won’t see her son again
A father in a stadium
Next to an empty seat
Schoolmates who will never forget
The boy who played out on their street
There’s a brother
Who lost a brother who cannot be replaced
There are neighbours remembering
The boy with a smile upon his face
There will be a minutes silence
At Goodison this week
But for those with information
The time has come to speak

Notes

Football seems irrelevant but it was important to Rhys Jones, a big part of his life, and it is fitting that he will be remembered at Goodison Park tomorrow. I hope that the way Rhys lived his life will comfort his family and inspire his friends. May happy memories light the dark times ahead.
With my sincere condolences.
