Words are never enough

Today is a very special day for two reasons. It is our daughter Yvette’s birthday and six months since we said goodbye to our little grandson Peter.  Yesterday we took Luke to his three year old Kindergarten Christmas Party. While there we could not help but be moved once again at their kindness and the warmth of their love towards Peter. On the wall is a montage of photos of Peter and his time at ‘Kinda’ so the children can remember him. At the front of the building is a flowering Cherry Tree planted by the children in his memory. We thanked them for all they had done and once again I realized that words are never enough. So many hundreds of people reached out to Peter in various ways over the last months and weeks of his life, some we will never know. Their generous spirit of support, prayers and well wishes were all given unconditionally not expecting anything in return. (At one stage there were over eleven hundred people following his facebook page.) They will never know how much they meant to us all and what joy they brought to a little boys life. As already stated, words are never enough.


This is one of my many favourite pictures of Peter. He was dressed up warm to go on his dreamed of Hot Air Balloon ride. He flew high above the beautiful Yarra Valley on a freezing May morning compliments of his amazing Kindergarten.
