Friends pay trib­ute to their pal

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD HALF MARATHON -

TRIBUTES have been paid to Kaden Gow­ers who is de­scribed by many as a ‘pop­u­lar and car­ing’ young man.

Kaden, 13, died af­ter try­ing to stop a car rolling away.

Friends and class­mates at All Hallows Catholic Col­lege held a spe­cial prayer to the teenager the morn­ing af­ter his death.

In a trib­ute, the col­lege’s prin­ci­pal, Tony Billings, said: “Kaden joined All Hallows this Septem­ber, com­ing into Year Nine.

“In a very short space of time he made many new friends both at All Hallows and across the town.

“We are all deeply sad­dened by news of the tragic ac­ci­dent, which has taken Kaden from us.

“This morn­ing we held a spe­cial prayer ser­vice with Year Nine where we prayed for Kaden, his fam­ily and friends, and all those who mourn his loss.

“Our chap­lains have been on hand to sup­port staff and stu­dents who are up­set, and we are reach­ing out to Kaden’s fam­ily, re­as­sur­ing them of our prayers and prac­ti­cal sup­port.”

Those who knew Kaden left tributes on the Ex­press Face­book page.

Tracy El­lis posted: ‘Hadn’t even known you for that long, you was one of them kids you couldn’t help but like. Sleep tight, kidda, you’re go­ing to be missed by so many peo­ple’.

Leah Corn­forth wrote: ‘You were al­ways a good mate to me, can’t be­lieve you’re gone, gonna miss you loads, pal. RIP Kaden’. A post by Laura N Liam Wilkin­son said: ‘Loved by ev­ery­one. Such a pop­u­lar boy.

‘RIP Kaden’.
