The family of Conservative Sir David Amess says they were “absolutely broken” by his death.
In a statement issued through the Metropolitan Police Department, they said: No one should die that way. “
Conservative Sir David, 69, who has been a member of parliament since 1983, met with members on Friday afternoon when he was repeatedly stabbed at the Belfairs Methodist Church in Leonsee, Essex.
A 25-year-old man, known as Ali Harubi Ali, was arrested on the scene of Essex on suspicion of murdering Sir David.
The family communicated their political beliefs to some and urged them to confront the hatred after he died of multiple puncture wounds on Friday.
“Strong and courageous is a good way to explain David. He was a patriot and a peaceful man,” they said. “So we ask people to set their differences aside and show kindness and love to all. This is the only way to move forward. Set hatred aside and strive for a sense of unity. To do.
“Whatever racial, religious or political beliefs are tolerant and trying to understand. As a family, we are trying to understand why this terrible thing happened. Everyone dies that way. Shouldn’t be. No one. “
The family continued. “Bring something good from this tragedy. We are absolutely broken, but we will survive and continue for those who are wonderfully inspiring.
“At this point, please respect the privacy of your family so that we can be personally saddened.”
“We are very proud of him. Our hearts are shattered. But there was still a lot of work David wanted to do. This can be seen from what happened in the last few days. This is not the end of Sir David Amess MP. “
The family added that the city status of the South End would be a worthy compliment, as well as the statue of the late Dame Verry Lin, whom he supported.
