The mother of tragic Michael Kerr has written a poem to her son a year on from his death.
In the tribute, Pat Coleman, of Astor Avenue, Dover, describes the pain the family have suffered since his murder.
Today (Thursday) marks the first anniversary of his death.
His body was recovered in Satmar Lane, Capel-le-Ferne, after he was murdered in his gold Renault Clio.
Alicia Davis and Charlotte Coulson are serving life sentences for killing Mr Kerr, who had learning difficulties.
Mr Kerr, 30, lived with his mother until 2008, when he moved to King’s Ropewalk, Aycliffe, with his grandparents. His father, Jim Kerr, lives in Devonshire Road, Tower Hamlets.
The poem reads: "Its been a year since you left us I wish I knew why you died, I can't count the tears that have fallen, how many times I've cried.
"I'm told that time will ease my pain I'll never believe those words again.
"I miss you Michael I always will One day we'll be together and time can stand still. I love and miss you always and forever, from your ma."
The victim was well known in east Kent and was loved by many. His life was commemorated by the Dover community last year when hundreds of lanterns were released in to the sky in his memory.
A lantern event is set to be held again tonight at 8.30 in Michael's memory, condoned by his parents.
