Grieving mum describes son as adorable, loving, little angel

KRISTY-Lee Facer says she will love her son Roanan Ace forever.

The three-year-old died tragically of heatstroke after crawling into a car on Tuesday afternoon in Tinana.

The grieving mother describes Roanan as her angel, her one and only.

Roanan's dad Danny Ace said he wished he had shared the same closeness with Roanan as Kristy-Lee did.

"The two had an inseparable bond," he said.

Kristy-Lee said her passion and love for Roanan was beyond anyone's expectation.

"He was the most adorable and loving little man," she said.

To his parents Roanan was their pride and joy.

"He brought so much happiness to so many people and touched so many hearts," Kristy-Lee said.

"He was my best friend ... he loved Gypsy-Rose his sister so very much."

Kristy-Lee said Roanan loved dinosaurs and horses with great passion.

She said Roanan would often pick her flowers, and present them to her calling them butterflies.

In Kristy-Lee's words, her son was her king.

She said she realised how rare it is for a person to meet their angel in their life time.

Roanan was hers.

Police investigations ruled his death an accident.
