Rest In Peace
Liam Harker, the 17-year-old Liverpool fan whose battle against cancer captured the imagination of millions of Reds fans last month, tragically lost his fight for life just after 4pm on Monday May 5.
News about Liam's condition immediately touched a nerve with Reds fans everywhere last month and a plan was put into action to try and create a number of flags bearing Liam's name to showcase at the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea at Anfield.
The hope was that TV cameras would pick out the flags and Liam, if he was still alive, would see them at home on TV. Liam was alive and the TV cameras did show the flags. It was an incredibly moving moment for Liam, his family and friends and Reds fans everywhere who had taken the 17-year-old to their heart.
The flags were then sent to Liam and adorned the walls of his room in time for the second leg of the semi-final at Stamford Bridge. Liverpool lost that match but for Liam's family, a far greater loss occurred today (Monday). Liam's suffering is now over however and our thoughts - and those of Liverpool supporters everywhere - go out to his family and those who really knew this remarkable young man.
In his final dying days, Liam Harker didn't walk alone.
Rest in peace my fellow Liverpudlian.
