My youngest is 25 today.
Here he is (on the right) with Vytas, indulging in a friendly bit of warfare when they were home in February. After he finished his Masters degree he continued to live in Stoke, working first in a supermarket and now as a warehouse man while playing in a band, composing his own music and working on a big project with his friends. The project is to open an indoor skatepark in an old factory. They have finally got all their funding and will be starting to build this month. He is such a hard worker and even today is working a 12 hour shift.
Skateboarding is a passion he shared with Linas. How good that he is building himself a future doing something he enjoys so much. Being so far away we don't get to see him that much but every now and again I watch his skateboarding videos, (yes he is dyslexic though it didn't hold him back at college or uni).
We are very proud of this young man and also very grateful for the way he came home immediately and looked after us when we were devastated by the loss of Linas.
