Hi Rory, Sam, Leigh and Sean,
Just letting you know my thoughts and prayers are with you all during your next journey.  Stay strong for each other and remember you are family.
In one sense I have been through the same journeys with my lovely Bob and understand the highs and lows that you have to go through.
Love and best wishes

Hi Leigh, I just wanted to say -your diary entries are so beautifully written , painful at times with their honesty but just incredible to read. Even though I can't begin to really know what you, Sean and your boys are going through, you do have a real talent for allowing glimpses into your life, day by day. Much Love, Denise

Hey Sam and Rory - hope you enjoyed your time out in the kayaks - looked like a lot of fun!  Did you manage to catch any fish?  One question we do have - how can Dad walk around in shorts in the snow, but has to wear a wetsuit when out on the water on a sunny day??!!?  Take care and as always, lots of love to you all - Auntie Teri and Uncle Graham - xxxx

Gday Rory, that sounds so perfect - kayaking with your family at the lakes.  William and Eva had a play on the beach this afternoon kicking the ball around and digging in the sand with their friends.  There are a lot of kids that live in the same street - the school bus only has three stops and then its full!!  It is so great cos they can all go riding their bikes together or play on the beach or gather coconuts to crack open.  There are heaps of coconut trees and the coconuts fall onto the lawn or onto the road waiting to be picked up... yummy!  Thinking of you all.

WOW what an amazing weekend!  It must have been lovely up at the Lakes today the weather was beautiful!  Rory obviously feels very at home on a kayak if he can drift off to sleep, I would have thought one would get hypothermia putting any body part in the water this time of the year!  How lovely of Greg and Tracey to organise the wood for you, and of Greenways Trust to donate it!  I do recall telling you Leigh that we were only a phonecall away to help stack the wood!!! Your just lucky I lost my broomstick lastnight (along with all of my ugly witchy powers!) who knows what spell I could have cast upon the wood to make it stack itself!!  Sleep well and we will see you all tomorrow! hehehehehehe
