16 March, 1957 to 12 August, 2011



I don't want the sun to go down on this day. It's strange that yesterday as we drove to say our goodbyes it was such a perfect afternoon and everything looked so especially beautiful. Returning only 24 hours later it is equally as perfect and yet today I don't want the sun to go down. Everything is different now, tomorrow a new life begins for us all, one without my darling brother in it. He was so brave, so unbelievably strong against the odds and till the very end.


My darling Michael. For all the things you'll never do, and all the things you'll no longer see, I will always carry you with me and you'll always be here. Thank you for always loving me so and making me feel so very special.

What a beautiful post for your brother. I want you to know there are so many of us who have sore hearts reading this.

I wish I was close by for a wine and the softest tissues ever.
