She added that her son would “do everything for everyone” and always “do his best for everyone.”
“He was just a happy boy,” she added. “He was so polite and well-mannered.

Mrs. Davies, who is unable to work, is now hoping to start a fundraising campaign to help pay for her son’s funeral expenses.
She said that people should understand the very real danger of the coronavirus and added, “This is no joke, take it seriously.
“This is a young boy, he was 27 with a life for him and a young family.
“Don’t let your kids play. Stay away, it’s just not worth it, stay home.
“Nothing can bring my boy back. I can’t turn the clock. I can never speak to him again, I can never see him again. ‘
Insulate yourself. Listen. Just listen the fuck. ‘
