A BOY whose father was killed in a motorcycle crash has written a heartbreaking note to say: "Love you daddy." Shawn Swaby died after coming off his motorbike last Saturday morning in Roman Way. The 38-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene despite paramedics' efforts to save him. Hours later his ex-partner Charlene Smith found herself breaking the news to their children, Tshawn Swaby, 9, and Tanarj'e Swaby, 12. After being told what had happened, Tshawn wrote a letter to his dad which read: "RIP daddy. We love you. You will always be [in] our hearts so RIP. Love you daddy." Miss Smith, from Selhurst, said their daughter had struggled to take in the tragic news. Mr Swaby is thought to have been on his way to work, as a financial adviser, when he came off his motorcycle at around 9.30am. It was initially thought that he had collided with a tarmac truck. However, Lafarge Tarmac said its truck did not come into contact with the motorcycle. It was the company's driver who called for an ambulance. Officers from the Met's Road Death Investigation Unit, based in Catford, are appealing to anybody who witnessed the incident to call 020 8285 1574.
