Here once again for your 5th Anniversary, it just seemed like yesterday that the Lord took you from us, you were too good for this earth Paul and I know that you would be happy up there out of pain and a lot of love ones to be there with you, you have a lot of people to catch up with who you didn't know.
You will always be in my heart the love I have for you is eternal, I am finding myself waiting for your phone calls on special occasions. Lee and partner have a beautiful son we are going to visit in February the same day as Ollie's birthday,
Sweetheart, we never ever forget you. Your loving Mum xxx

Well sweetheart back again with another Easter just passed, I am really feeling the loss you not being here always expecting your phone calls, have a very lonely life without you. Todd and his wife Tanya who are present are caravanning around Australia on their way around are going to visit Maria in Canberra to see the beautiful new baby from Lee and partner Stacie then come up to Queensland to stay a while with me. I am very lonely when I don't have contact with Ollie or Todd and Lee who is a beautiful young man, I feel the love from him. never forgets to tell me on every contact, although Ollie's texts he always puts Love Ollie, maybe mumma bear is watching.

Another Anniversary Paul it is just as raw it was when you passed
I would give my life to have you back
I cry each night for you
I pray for the day that I can see you again
I close my eyes and I can see you
You are the first person I loved when you were born
You were always there when I needed you and you always knew when I needed a hug
I am always here for you in my heart and soul
You did not take my heart with you, you left yours with mine to look after
One day you will take your hand and lead me to paradise but until then my beautiful son when I want to see you I only need to close my eyes.

Another birthday has passed sweetheart and am missing you just as much wishing I could turn back the clock and have you back with us but not the pain and misery you were feeling, Ollie went out to dinner to celebrate your birthday wishing I was there to be with him.
Also he went to the cemartry to visit your dad and you, he is such a wonderful kind gentle young man someone to be proud of. Todd and Tanya are now travelling around Australia in a van and new 4 wheel drive sending back some fantastic photos putting them on Facebook so we can all view them.

Hello my sweetheart son PAUL,
Kevin and I drove to Lucky Bay S.A. in the beautiful Subaru Forester we purchased with the money given to us from our grandson Ollie to have a beautiful Christmas with Todd and Tanya, Ollie and his girlfriend Tash joined us on Boxing day. Really a beautiful couple.
We have never enjoyed such a Christmas like this one it brings back so many memories of our family all together when you were all growing up.
The food was superb also the preparation all cooked by Todd and Tanya, we missed having you there but we know you were there in spirit we had a seat at the table for you. The time with everyone except you Maria and your dad was so precious to me.
We travelled to Canberra to see Maria which was very precious, also to Tamworth to visit Kevin's four sisters and we were home for your anniversary New Year's Day. I miss and Love you so very much always in my heart and never ever forgotten. xxx

For your 50th birthday in Heaven, still very much loved, still very much missed and very dear to us all
"Your birthday's here but you aren't
I'd send a gift but know I can't
So I'll make a wish upon a star
To carry our love to where you are
My beautiful warm, caring, genious son we all thank you for the wonderful gift you were to the family, love you so very much.

I hide my tears when I say your name, but the pain in my heart is still the same. Although I smile and seem care free there is no one who misses you more than me.
It's hard to forget someone who gave me so much to remember
Every day that passes brings me closer to seeing you in heaven.

You realise how much you truly miss someone when something happens good or bad and the only person you want to tell is the one person who isn't here.
The hardest part wasn't losing you, it was learning to live without you.

I am back again to add to your Memorial, it has been very hard to go on for Oliver and me, we miss you constantly and can't move on as you are always in our thoughts. I pray you are watching over us all it is a comfort to know you are peaceful and with our great Lord Jesus.

I am writing this tribute for my beautiful friend and second mother to my son Paul, Her name is Irene, mother to John, Catherine and Lisa who where always a big part of our family friendship. John and Paul were always great friends from the time they went to the same schools and played on the same sport teams. Paul was always there for John and visa versa. Paul was best man at John's wedding to Tina.
As they got older and Paul got sick John was always there for Paul.

Many times voted Fairest and Best in your football

Looked out for Todd's welfare reporting to me and his dad about a fight that was pending
You paid for Jenny Craig for me for 6 months

I always felt that you really loved me not only as your mother but as your best friend
How proud you were of Oliver when he was born and you both did a wonderful job as to how he is now grown into a wonderful human being, so much like you so kind and so caring of other people especially family how proud you would be of him Paul, he misses you terribly so do I
