Hey there matey, I was looking over your website and I thought "Wow you have a very clever mum who keeps us so well informed, I didn't know that she was such an amazing writer! Then there is your wonderful dad who still has to soldier on at work, and is so brave that he wore pink, green and blue all at the same time for a photo that we all got to see!!  And your wonderful big brother Sam who did extremely well with his swimming and triathlon - Whoop Whoop to Sam!  Then I looked at you Rory and YOU are the bravest person that I know in the whole world!  Keep that cheeky smile happening buddy, you still shine and it is so nice to see photos of you and your friends just being 7 year olds.  Healing and wellness coming your way from Korie and his Mum xox

Hi Rory,
Hows the macaroni cheese, hope it's good, Deb's is a pretty good cook.  We will be down to see you Saturday afternoon, we can't wait to catch up with you.  Saw Mum and Sam at school the other day, the muffins sounded yummy.  Just looked at the latest pictures, Dad sure looks great all decked out in the gears!!  Anyway Rory, I hope you have a good appetite when I come as there's lots of goodies coming your way.  We will finally get to go through the new tunnel, boy's can't wait.  See you Saturday. Kia kaha.
Love from us xxx

Hey there guys,  Hanging in there I see!  Golly it must be hard keeping up with all of the surgeries! I guess its all good if they go ahead and start the radiotherapy on Tuesday...the sooner it all starts the sooner it gets kicked in the butt!!!  I really wish we could be more help.  Kody and Korie both wore their new t-shirts and looked like a team!  Whare Danielle tried to get Kody to give his up, I think she might want one too! 
Leigh it is great to hear the laptop is up and running  and I guess doing a bit of work when you can will help you to cope too! 
Excellent work Sam with the swimming certificates. Keep up the good work and help Granny keep the home fires burning!!!
Keep strong, please pass on to Rory, Kody says Hi! and the new teacher is cool! 
Sending our love and bestest healing thoughts your way,  Trudi xxxxx

Thinkin of you Rory. Haven't heard of you complaining, what a champion. And Sam, fabulous effort with all your special certificates, that takes just as much courage to achieve when things are a bit topsy turvy. I hope Trudi explained to you Leigh, the thought behind everything in the bag. You know where to go if you want more. Warm fuzzies, positive fibes coming your way from my family.

Hey Rory - the people I work with have given me some lot of jokes to pass onto you:
Why did the chicken cross the road?  'Cos it wanted to.
Why did the chewing gum cross the road?  'Cos it was stuck to the leg of the chicken.
Why was the chicken scared of the chcken?  Because it was chicken.
Knock knock.  Who's there?  Me.  Me Who? Me, who else would it be?
I work with some strange people....Hope these put a smile on your face! Lots of love, Auntie Teri xxxx
