In tears thinking of how much I miss you, how much we had, how much more you could have had but feeling blessed for all the wonderful memories - all the family holidays, being involved in Chris's football, the girls dancing and their concerts, all the parties where we let our hair down with the kids and their friends. Times spent with family and friends. So glad that you had a job that you loved so much but you also loved home. Chris seems so lost when he visits now. I look over in the corner where you use to sit and imagine you there watching the footy or Frazier or Friends and laughing out loud. I imagine you leaning on the pool fence just staring out at the pool and watching if anyone was swimming. Chris often walks over and leans on the fence just like you did & I know he is thinking of you. There is a huge hole in our hearts without you here. You would have been amused by the antics of all your grandkids. Would have loved to have been sharing all this with you but unfortunately, life isn't perfect but for me it was for 40 years - more than a lot of people ever have.I will try to continue to be grateful for all I have but will always be sad for what you have missed out on. I hope you are looking over us from heaven and content to know that we are managing to get on with our lives even though we are all heartbroken. Love you with all my heart and soul. Vicki

Sometimes I wonder about numbers and their connections. 22 was Mum & Dad's "lucky number" - both our birthdays were the 22nd. You left this physical earth the same date as your grandfather and mother which was the the 27th December. Mum & Dad's anniversary is the 27th February.

Hi dad, feeling really sad tonight and missing you so much. It's so heartbreaking that you're missing out on so much. Spending time with your grandkids. Travelling with mum. It just seems so unfair. I still can't believe you're gone. I love you.

38 years ago today I started at Stannards with you. What great times and laughs we had. I wish we could do it all over again.

Let us agree
for now
that we will not say
the breaking
makes us stronger
or that it is better
to have this pain
than to have done
without this love.

Let us promise
we will not
tell ourselves
time will heal
the wound,
when every day
our waking
opens it anew.

Perhaps for now
it can be enough
to simply marvel
at the mystery
of how a heart
so broken
can go on beating,
as if it were made
for precisely this—

as if it knows
the only cure for love
is more of it,

as if it sees
the heart’s sole remedy
for breaking
is to love still,

as if it trusts
that its own
persistent pulse
is the rhythm
of a blessing
we cannot
begin to fathom
but will save us
nonetheless.


Thinking, loving, missing you always

Can you believe it is 31 years ago when our lives were changed forever, in the best way possible? They say bringing up kids is the hardest job in the world but not when you are just so grateful to have them and when you work as a team and support each other and just share the joy of bringing wonderful people into the world. We were so blessed Ronnie. Just when my heart is about to break into a million pieces because I miss you so much, I remember how much love there is in our family and if it hadn't been for you, none of them would be here. I will miss you until the day I die and after that, we will start another journey together. My love continues to grow stronger for you everyday. I constantly look at our photos and boy we had some fun. So glad I have your precious letters as well. Sometimes, they make me cry and other times they make me laugh out loud. Love, love, love you.
