Well hello!  Kody has asked me to write to you tonight as he is too tired!  The walk to the Bluff was exciting and he came home and checked to see if they had their photo taken at the same sign as you guys.  He told me I couldnt do it cause my legs would get too tired!  We then went out to my sisters house where we were getting firewood and the boys played around and watched their cousin Daniel scrape the fat off a possum skin! eeewwww! Daniel caught it skinned it treated it with salt stuff and now is doing the scraping! Kody thought it was cool. Well we all hope you had a better day and fingers crossed you still get to come home this week.  Lots of Love The Johnstons xxxx

Hey Rory, Our Nana(Judy) told us about your website. So we thought we'd send you our best wishes, because we use to go to Kamo under 5 daycare with you and Sam. And our Mum(Kelly) worked there with our Nana(Judy) and Aunty Tamla.
Mum's  been reading through here and knows heaps of the Dargavillians(cause her and Dad are old Dargavillians) that have sent in stuff, she can't believe ole Sean Passell is 40...HI Kathryn!
So hope your feeling better today...if not eat more chocolate...that always helps!
Mum wants to know if Sam still quiet and shy? He was always the easiest kid to get to sleep at nap time

Hi Rory, I went for a walk up the bluff with Kody and dad and I found a kauri snail shell for my science table and we got a photo in front of the sign that you have with your dad and Sam. I hope you feel better today. From Korie xox

Hi Leigh and Sean, Rory and Sam, Just had a lovely paddle down the Ngunguru River with about 60 other people. I wanted to share it with you cos looking at your pix you guys like your adventures. Close your eyes and imagine for a moment a still, overcast morning, full tide, the red-purples of the saltmarsh ribbonwood, green and yellows of the oioi, the gentle rhythm of the paddles as we went with the tide down to the sea. We saw ridges of kauri and rimu, graceful kowhai tickling the water, white olearia flowering, fat shags heading for a roost and the scent of the mangrove flowers wafted around us. It was a magical April day on the coast.  Take a deep breath guys - remember the moments and know you can do this. Thinking of you all. Nan P.

Hi Rory, Leigh, Sean and Sam, I'm glad to hear that the Easter Bunny found you two boys, and I see from one of Janine's comments that there was something in paper in Taranaki about you - we get the Daily News sent to my work here in Palmy, so I will find the article and be able to show people at work - they keep asking me how you are doing.  Leigh, you talked about Rory being your inspiration, well at the moment, you are mine (Rory too), you are doing a fantastic job of being there and helpring Rory fight this, and keeping us all up to date with how he is - stay strong.  Love to all, Michelle, Rob, Ethan and Niamh

Good morning Rory and family, happy chocolate holidays!  Well as you know Korie, his dad (Gordon) and Kody have gone to climb the bluff today - I couldnt go because I have a weak foot but when it gets stronger I hope they will take me. Kories cousin took him down to the river yesterday and they saw some huge eels, a lady who lives nearby feeds them.  Eels gross me out a little bit so that is one adventure I will leave to the boys!  We think about you all so much and send thoughts of wellness and healing every day.
Love to you all Kathryn and Co.
