“Archie was, and always will remain our everything. Those of you who know us know the catastrophic effect it has had, and will have on us for the rest of our days.

“Archie was the most extraordinary magical human being we have ever met. We are still learning each day the incredible impact he had on others lives, the kindness and generosity he showed them.

“He was an old soul and incredibly advanced for his years in many ways. As his parents we couldn’t be prouder of him for all he achieved in the short time he was given, and especially for the beautiful human being he was.

“We are so grateful and privileged to have been chosen to be his parents. The journey and adventure has been the best anyone could ever have wished for. A truly magical time in every way possible.”

Lucy continued: “Four days before Christmas Nick and I sat in Harley Street with the results of Archie’s second post mortem.

“The Dr explained Archie died from natural causes… He died from an Intracerebral Haemorrhage caused by Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma/Leukaemia. This is not Leukaemia as we know it, the word Acute in medical terms means rapid.

“He assured us that there wasn’t anything anyone could have done as Archie showed no signs of illness. Archie had numerous bleeds on the brain and the Dr went to great lengths to reassure us that he wouldn’t have been in any pain as it happened in his sleep.

“The results utterly floored us to think something like this could happen. It’s very rare and around only 800 people a year die from it.”

“Only days before he’d been with the love of his life Nethra celebrating his birthday early as she was due to go away with work commitments. Life is fragile, precious and sometimes incredibly cruel.

“To lose a child is every parents nightmare and I wouldn’t wish this pain on anyone. My heart goes out to any other parents what have had to experience this,” she wrote.

“Nick and I try each day to make Archie proud, but it’s baby steps, beyond hard and a struggle at times. The world is a very different place without him.

“Archie was an empath. He loved life, he valued everyone in it and every moment he was given. He was always singing, and had such energy and passion in everything he did.”

“There aren’t enough words to describe him, he was a one off, and beyond unique. Our darling boy, we love you forever and ever and thank you everyday, for every beautiful memory we have.

“We will celebrate you always. All our love. Mama and O.M ❤️💫🕊💔🧢✨XxX”.

Archie was best known for his role of Ollie Coulton in the popular CBBC show So Awkward.
