A shrine dedicated to stabbed teenager Craig Marshall has been set up by his younger brother in a community garden where they grew up.
Aaron Marshall collected flowers and tributes left by friends and family to honour the memory of the popular 19-year-old, who died after being knifed in Acton on Thursday night last week.
Dozens of people from South Acton have been visiting the garden behind Craig's home in Meredith Tower, Hanbury Road, to pay their respects and share stories about the much-loved teenager.
Aaron moved flowers left at the scene of Craig's stabbing at Rufford Tower, behind Acton police station, to a temporary gazebo where he and friends are keeping a candlelit vigil.
"I was afraid the rain would ruin the flowers. I can't let Craig go yet," said the 18-year-old. "If people knew my brother I'd rather they came here to show their respect.
"The shrine keeps everyone calm. Craig was guy who never did any harm to anyone and always helped everyone else. He was always giving me advice, and he wanted to be a fireman and save people."
Aaron had picked up an application form for the fire service last Thursday to give to Craig, but did not have the opportunity to pass it on before he was stabbed later that night.
Now he has started a collection to pay for his brother's funeral and a bench for the garden to serve as a permanent memorial.
"I'm just trying to be strong and keep everyone else strong," he said. "My brother always said to people that he wanted them to be happy, and he would want us to be happy.
"We're trying to get as much money together as possible from the people who knew him. Craig always said he wanted a great funeral, and he will have one."
Anyone who knew Craig or who wants to pay their respects is wel-come to visit and donate to the memorial fund.
Family friend Sarah Seare, 34, said: "All the kids grew up together and this is helping because it brings everyone together to mourn instead of being in pain on their own.
"It shows Aaron and his family and friends that people really do care, and people loved and respected
Craig. It's going to be strange around this estate without him."
* Kandeepan Balasubramaniam, 21, of Rufford Tower, Lexden Road, has been charged with murder in relation to the stabbing. A second 20-year-old man has been bailed to return pending further enquiries.
