Thames River Memorial – A Mother’s Story

In 2008 Val Hills and her husband Paul from Brentwood were spending Christmas at home.  They were worried about their 30 year old son Daniel Paul who hadn’t made contact for more than a week.  While he had an independent life Daniel had mental problems and at times had trouble handling it and needed to stay in touch with his family.

The Story:
On Christmas Eve, there was a knock on the door.  It was the police.  They had a message for Daniels parents.  Val says she had a feeling it would not be good news and was shattered when  told Daniel’s body had been found in the River Thames.

Thames River Memorial
She welcomes the Thames Well Wishing Memorial.  It was an idea initiated by her after she met other families who had also lost loved ones to the River Thames and Rob Jeffries, former police officer with the River Thames Police.  Val has shared her story with ynuk.tv
