Who was Jack Lis ?
The mother of a boy who was mutilated to death in a savage dog attack paid an emotional tribute to her son as hundreds of mourners dressed in red and paid their respects at his funeral.
Jack Lis, 10, of Pentwyn, Penyrheol, died after being attacked by the 115-pound beast while playing at a friend’s house after school on Monday, November 8. The schoolboy suffered “insurmountable” head and neck injuries and was pronounced dead just after 4pm.
Crowds lined the streets and cheered as the funeral headed to St Martin’s Church, Caerphilly, where the songs Start Over by Flame, Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again and Ramz’s Family Tree were played.
In an emotional read, Jack’s mother, Emma Whitfield, said: ‘I spent the last 10 years watching you grow up and we started to watch you grow into an amazing man.
My heart hurts so much that we won’t be able to see you turn into that amazing man. This is not goodbye, this is goodbye, friend.
A fundraiser set up on behalf of Mrs Whitfiel, to help pay for his funeral, has raised over £ 16,000 to date.
Mrs. Whitfield and Jack’s father described him as “the sweetest of children” and said that he had made them the “proudest of parents.”
Reverend Mark Greenway Robbins told the congregation: ‘None of us expected to be here and no one wanted to be here, but let’s take a moment to think about how we remember Jack.
Keep that particular memory of him for which you treasure him and for which you thank him. And let’s honor him for a quiet moment together.
“ As we remember moments of tears and laughter, we thank God for the love we share for Jack. ”
One of Jack’s family spoke during the service and said: ‘I hope you will belittle everything we do with a smile. We want him to be as proud of us as we are of him. ”
A tribute from his best friend, read aloud, read: ‘Jack, you left too soon. I was never able to say goodbye, but I look forward to the day when we meet again.
‘Thank you for being an amazing friend, you will always be in my heart.’
The service order showed photos of Jack playing in a park, in his school uniform and on a scooter, as well as photos of a selection of cars.
Jack’s family asked for more donations for the charity 2 Wish Upon A Star, which helps grieving families who have lost their children.
Jack was outside his home in Penyrheol, Caerphilly, where he had been “playing with a friend.”
The two then went to his friend’s house on a neighboring street after school on Monday, November 8, when the dog attack occurred.
Neighbors and paramedics tried to save the schoolboy, but he died at the scene and the dog was destroyed at the scene. A 28-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the dog attack.
Eyewitnesses said armed officers shot the brown and white American pit bull seven times after she launched a terror attack on Jack.
The powerful 115-pound dog that attacked the schoolboy had only been with his friend’s family for days after being sold by roofer Lee Jenkins.

Adding: “We will always miss his outlandish ways and his stories that he would spend so much time telling us.”
Labor MP Wayne David called for an urgent review of the dangerous dog laws after Jack’s ‘traumatic’ and ‘tragic’ death, as detectives investigate whether the animal was one of four prohibited breeds, which include the American Pit Bull Terrier. , the Japanese tosa, the Argentine dogo and Braziliero row.
Gwent police said the dog involved in the attack was 15 months old, but the force is still working to identify its breed.
Police say a canine law expert has now been engaged to examine its characteristics and see if the dog is a permitted breed in the UK.
Chief Superintendent Mark Hobrough said experts will “look at the dog’s character traits” to see if it is a prohibited breed.
He said: “We are looking at all the potential crimes and all the potential actions that should arise as a result of this investigation.”
