"Well I did it.  I got through the day yesterday, Karl.  Mandy, Shannon and I released a balloon each with a poem to send you on your way with our love.  My balloon broke away from the crowd and headed towards the mountains - North bound.  That's a sign that you were heading to the lake - where you should have been, your dream of a better future.  So, although you are no longer here, I'm convinced your spirit is destined to be forever in Canada.  You'll always be with me. xxx"

"This has been such a terrible day Karl. The 1st anniversary of your death, which should never have happened. You were much too young. For a parent to bury a child, is the worse thing that can ever happen. I love you so much, and i will never get over your death. Till we meet again ......xxxxxxx"

"Today would have been your 44th birthday.  I still can't believe you're not here.  Your life was way too short - you had so many things left to do and so many dreams you needed to fulfill.  I wish we could have had more time together, Karl.  Being in different countries in recent years made that a little tough and if I'd known then what I know now we would have made more of an effort to spend time together.
I love you and you will always be in my heart.  Keep watching over us - I know you are around, I can feel your presence and that brings me comfort. xxx"

"What a nice idea and a wonderful way to bring those who loved Karl, together. We will all remember him in our way as we all had a special relationship with him, but one thing we all have in common is how shocked and saddened we were by the shocking news of his passing. No one can ever be prepared for that and I know personally that I will never get over my baby Brother being taken from us too soon.
May you rest in peace, Karl   Know that you are always loved and very sadly missed xxx"
