Dear Rory, well today I was home sick, I had to do some work from home and this afternoon I slept on the couch. While I was asleep (which was an accident) my little four year old boy had fun with a can of green spray tail paint (farmers use it on cows and it generally rubs off). Well, he sprayed all the calves in one pen and then went into the next pen and sprayed a freisian bull calf that was asleep!!! That was kind of funny, but then he went and sprayed one of our utes, that was not so funny. His dad is really mad. He has had time out for it. That was our day. Glad to hear that today wasn't so bad and i like reading about you everyday. I know about you through Mrs Johnston. Hope the Easter Bunny leaves lots of eggs for you. he might not leave them for my little boy, we will have to wait and see. Brenda

Hi Rory,
I hope you start to feel better in the next few days.  I'm sitting here after school and it feels weird knowing that I'm not going to get to see the class again.  I'm going to miss everyone so much.  Hopefully I might get to see you before I leave.
Your Mum's got a new pack of things from the class for you.  We thought since we won't be able to send you anything for the next 2 weeks we'd better make it count.  I hope you enjoy reading about the ghastly creatures we imagined and that the other surprise brightens your room up too.
Love from Miss Barr

Hi Rory
My name's Fiona and I work at the District Council with your mum.  Today we held a 'wear green for Rory' fundraiser at work. A lot of people have worn all different shades of green, and donated money and we have raised $1030 for you and your family.  We will put this onto your webpage next week.  Everyone at Council wishes you, your mum and the rest of your family all the best.  We hope you get well enough to get out of Auckland real soon.  Take care Rory, and keep smiling that amazing smile of yours!

Hi Rory,
I'm sorry you are not feeling too good today. I know what it is like when you are in hospital and you can't do things like everyone else.
I'm enjoying my first day of the holidays - I'm luckier than everyone else to be starting my holidays a day earlier. I should be doing my vacuuming but I have found better things to do - writing to you.
Hoping you are feeling better soon and that the Easter bunny will be extra kind to you.
Love from Miss McLean

Dear Rory, Sam Leigh and Sean. Im not sure if you'll remember me Rory, but I looked after you (and Sam) at Kamo Kids and Tots.  I have fond memories of those centres, and all the "little people" in them. Rory, I remember you use to like to go outside in little gumboots and a raincoat on and stomp around in the rain. I also remember we would always find you under the arch in the trees or in the bushy areas of the centre. I think you might follow in Dad's footsteps.....(hunting etc, if you are doing so already!)  I am thinking of you and your family everyday and wish you all the very best with your treatment.Good Luck guys!!! Love Tamla
