Arms are wrapped around you all with love, and my thoughts are with you, from across the ditch.

Wishing you plenty of aroha, happy memories and story time each day as it gets a little less sore; playtime with Bo, hanging out on the deck or at Awarua, and the biggest hugs.
Rest easy wee man. You are so loved.

Our deepest sympathy to you Kayla, Craig and young Elliott. To Wally and Nelda our dearest friends, this is how we embrace you!
Grief never ends..
But it changes.
It's a passage,
Not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign
of weakness,
Nor a lack of faith...
It is the price of

A poem for my good friend Mack

Vroom vroom, move out the way, here comes Mack’s tractor down the street!
Check the engine, pump the fuel, Mack’s driving his tractor to the sound of his own beat!

Piled sticks, collected rocks,
Treasures were found,
It’s been a great day, he’s lost his socks!

Stories of Dads bonfires,
Bigger and bigger, higher and higher,
The love of the bonfire, Mack sure did admire!

Mack would say, “All Day”,
Yes all day Mack, your at Kindy, don’t worry, Mum’s coming back!

Granga’s tools in the wood work shop,
Nana’s kisses and big hugs,
Were sure to make Mack’s heart pop!

Love for Elliot, Mack would say,
Can’t touch Elliots lego, but maybe one day!

Mack my friend, I will miss you,
My friendship for you was oh so true!

Thank you for being you,
I will cherish our memories,
Especially when I’m feeling blue!

I’ll look for the rainbow, or the green and yellow tractor,
That will be sure to put a smile on my dial!

Lots of Love from Anna Sutherland.
Anna Sutherland , INVERCARGILL
