Linda Davies, the 44 year old widow of Chiswick murder victim Robert Symons has given a touching statement on the loss of her beloved husband who was killed by an intruder in their home.

She said:

Rob and I thought we were going to grow old together.

And now when the children fall down, I can hear him offering to kiss them better.

Our children are so young, I doubt that they will remember him.

Rob's ideal was the family unit, Sunday lunches, holidays and walks.

He is going to miss the plans we made for Halloween, Harriet's birthday and Christmas.

He was the cook.

He was already planning the Christmas lunch.

I wish I could hold his hand.

He will be missed forever.
