FRIENDS have paid heartfelt tributes to Adil Basharat ahead of the first anniversary of his murder.
The popular 16-year-old was killed outside Kingsbrook School, Deanshanger, on November 21 last year.
Lea Beani, said: “Adil is one of the most amazing people I ever met. He helped me through so much and I don’t think he knew how much I appreciated it. I miss you so much Adil and I’ll never forget everything you did for me.”
Taylor Atkins said: “Wow. It’s almost been a whole year since you were taken from us. I don’t understand why but it has gone so quickly. For the first few months time just seemed to stand still and now its nearly November I cant believe you are really gone. I haven’t been to the tree in a long time and I’m really sorry about that, I have moved schools now too but there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t expect to wake up and go back to before, to how things should be now! i know that there is nothing I can do to bring you back or to change anything and I taught myself to try and focus on positive things, which believe me is way way way harder than you think! But look at what you have done to so many people, YOU have changed so many lives! We all have so many memories that will live on forever so don’t worry about that! I don’t really know what more to say but I want you to know that you will NEVER be forgotten, I promise you that from the bottom of my heart! I miss you!”
Demi James said: “You were lovely, witty and kind, you had a golden heart which is hard to find you left us a year ago, as we know, the 21st of every month means another month gone, remembering in silence is like listening to your favourite song. R.I.P Adil missing you forever.xxxx.”
Sophie Marie English said: “I miss Dilly so much it actually hurts, He was my best friend and my brother. When he died it felt like he took a huge part of me with him. I just wish i could have five minutes with him to just tell him how much he truly meant to me. I truly loved him with all my heart and more.”
“Some people come into our lives leaving footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same.” Becky Adams
Jordie Jackson, said: “Not a day has passed that I have not thought of you. Whether I’m sitting alone or surrounded by people, you’re still on my mind.
You never failed to make others smile and a day spent with you was guaranteed to be filled with laughter. I am so proud to say that I have so many memories with you, although it pains me to know that more of those memories just cannot be created. A year ago, you were taken away from your friends and family that loved and cared for you, so very much, now every night is spent wishing for the impossible. It comforts me to think that you’re still around us somewhere, that your body was taken away but your spirit will continue to live on. You were completely unique and you are completely irreplaceable. I will always remain loyal to your name and I will cherish our friendship for eternity. Rest in the most beautiful peace. I love you forever.”
Chanelle said: “Adil, I can’t believe its been a year already. 365 days without you. I cant seem to work out whether it has gone fast or slow. How is this even possible? And to this day I still find it hard to accept. I find myself posting on your wall most days because I feel as though that is the only way I get to talk to you. After all the years of knowing you throughout first, middle and secondary school I never thought the day would come where you would be taken away from us. Every night I seem to look at the stars but recently these past few months I noticed something different, there is one star that seems to shine so much brighter then all the other ones and it comforts me to think that is you shining down on us all. You made such a huge impact on so many people’s lives you were a true inspiration and the memories we have I will cherish forever! Even the one of when we was around the age of 11-12 and me and Zeeshan wedgied you so hard your underwear ripped in half! I miss you more and more everyday and I am so proud to call you my friend. Rest in peace beautiful.”
