THE family of 12-year-old Michael Raven have paid tribute to him following his death this week.
The ambulance service and police were called to an address in Burnley just after 5-20 p.m. on Monday after Michael was found hanging in his bedroom.
He was taken by ambulance to the Royal Blackburn Hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.
His family said; “Michael was the light of our lives. He brought so much joy and happiness to the lives of all who were fortunate to know him. We wanted him for life. God gave us 12 wonderful years with him then, for reasons known only to God, took him home to heaven.
“We all love him so very much and can’t see how life will carry on without him, but it will with the Grace of God. We all miss him so much. We would like to thank everyone for the lovely messages of support, love and prayers. Please continue to pray for us and Michael.”
