FAMILY and friends of road accident victim Alex 'Cookie' Cook-son turned out in force on Saturday to unveil a garden to his memory.
The memorial at Davenham's Royal British Legion Club has been created using money raised at a quiz in the club, where Alex and his friends used to meet.
There is a seat with a plaque dedicated to the popular Davenham teenager, a gazebo with roses, along with trees and plants.
Alex's mum Debi told the Chron -icle this week that the garden will bring comfort to everyone who knew the 19-year-old.
'It is a lovely place to be and there is a plaque on the seat telling everyone about Alex and all that he meant to people,' she said.
'His friends raised more than £1,000 to create the garden because they wanted somewhere to go to remember him and recall all the things they did together.'
Alex died when the car he was a passenger in came off the road on the notorious Bostock bends and hit a tree in March.
The driver, Mark Fryers of Castle Court in Northwich, was found guilty of driving without due care and attention and fined and banned from driving for 12 months.
In the days following the crash Alex's friends created a shrine of flowers at the site and hundreds of them packed Davenham Parish Church for the funeral.
'He meant so much to everyone and I feel really honoured to have been his mum,' said Debi.
'I miss him terribly and so does Mark, his younger brother.
'The pain of losing him never goes away, in fact, it is getting worse.
'I feel so much anger for the man who was driving the car because he knew the road, he knew it was dangerous and, despite that, he took the bend at too high a speed.
'With the injuries that Alex sustained, he must have been flying round that bend.'
Debi says she has drawn comfort from the garden and is looking forward to watching it grow.
She added: 'Alex had so much time for everyone. He had so much love for everyone, he just wanted people to be happy.'
