Mrs McPher­son, 59, has spent the past three months hop­ing her youngest son would come home.

De­spite her an­guish at news of her son’s death, she said it had brought them clo­sure af­ter three ag­o­nis­ing months.

The ser­vice will be held at Smith and Catto’s fu­neral home at Linkwood Road in El­gin at 1.30pm on Mon­day.

Ai­dan will be buried in New El­gin Ceme­tery in the same plot as his fa­ther, Ste­wart.
