One is when you took me to wet n wild and we went on a really scarey ride and you said if we swore you wouldn't tell mum and at the top of my lungs I screamed "holy cheese" and you have called me Mouse ever since. Another memory from that day was when we where on another ride and you said "on the count of 3 girls, jump" and at the bottom of the the ring emerged with no one it and the guy told you off for jumping out but you said we fell out. Later on you snuck me on to a ride I wasn't allowed on.
You also tricked my mum into thinking that she was adopting a bunny from one of your friends but we found out a couple of years later when mum asked who was the friend and you said there was no friend and that you went on buy swap sell because you thought our other bunny, Dandy, needed a friend.
I remember the time on Halloween when mum told us to go and put Dandy in his hutch and you hid behind the car and scared us because you were dressed up as a Dracula and kirstie picked up a log in dandys run and tried to hit you with it. We got our revenge by pelting you with a 100 water bombs on Christmas Day.
You never failed to come to nippers to support me and Kirstie. The only time you didn't come you told me the week before and said you couldn't tell me why you couldn't make it but you would visit a bit later that day. When I came home for nippers there was a slip n slide that you had set up while we were at nippers for my birthday. I'm very thankful for all the things you did for me such as taking the day off work to take me and Kirstie to Luna park, doing fun things for us whenever you looked after us like taking us bowling and taking us to the waterhole and cooking us our favourite dinners and taking us out for lunch. Another memoriy is when you took us camping and someone left their fire on and forgot about and it got really big so you put it out.
I love you so much. Always and forever. Mouse x aka Charlotte
Dear Evie & Claire. I have never met you before but I feel like I know you just a little. I worked with your dad at The Shepherd Centre and while I knew him through all our work duties, over the last year, we spoke mostly of you. You see...I was also pregnant and little Poppy was born just 3 weeks before you Evie. I saw how excited he was to be a dad, the wonder of this little amazing human coming into the world. He loved you so much before you were even born. Take care, Poppy & Sharon x
Evie, your dad was kind, loving and generous. When his friend, my brother Tom, died in an accident, I barely knew Dave. However, he was the first to contact me and share beautiful memories with me about Tom. He looked after me in every way that was in his power. When your mum and I were both pregnant, we shared our excitement about our babies together, and he was SO excited to meet you, and love you. You and your mum made him so proud and he loved you both so much. Never forget that. Xox
