|Let the memory of Stefan James be with us forever|
"Today your dad and I spent your 25th Birthday at your grave. We talked about you, shared memories and cried many tears....
Later Margaret and John joined us with Jake's 3 dogs playing beside you as we sang Happy Birthday xx"
""the righteous man, though he die early, will be at rest. For old age is not honored for length of time, nor measured by number of years; but understanding is gray hair for men, and a blameless life is ripe old age." [Wisdom of Solomon, 4:7-9]"
"Stefan made a difference just by being who he was, his inner light shone bright and touched lives near and far and even when he is gone, he still forever plays a part in the memory of smiles, photographs and priceless moments, that are treasured to the foundations of ones inner soul. (adapted from a message by: Emily Matthews)
Eternal memory dear Stefan"
"You would have been twenty five today.
Gone for so long already,
Yet it seems like only yesterday that you were here.
But in the wind, and in the trees, and in the air all around,
You are still with us.
Just as you said it would be."
"Think of you often Stefan, sending love to you and your dear mom, Bronwyn.❤️❤️"
"Happy Birthday to a son - who would be 24!
I keep looking for you - but you're never at the door
"I love you mum" you told me
"Live your life - go boldly"
I try so hard my boy - but without you there's little joy"

"23 years old today dear Stefan. Time flies by so fast! It's 3 years since you left us. I still think of the things you shared with me in the short time we knew each other. And every crow I hear lets me know you are near! XXX"
It was an absolute honour to have met you at the recent PICS/RCH day.
You are an amazing inspiration to everyone and a divine being.
I only wish I had have been fortunate enough to have experienced Stefan's company and presence too.
Much love always,
"Stefan, you were a great guy and it is easy to clearly remember your cheeky laugh and original ideas about the world. I have fond memories of talking with you about video games, pets and philosophy. Rest in peace mate."
"3yrs ago today, I lost someone who was funny, smart and honest. Someone who loved me very much. Someone very special, my best friend, My Son.
"Stefan, my child, time has not changed the depth of my feelings of how very much you are missed. But without that ache, it would be forgetting and you will never be forgotten. Your presence still surrounds me and all the people who love you" xx"
"To my friend stefan very sad you left us very early your contribution to life was amazing.hope your lookin down on us to see we are heading in the rite direction make sure lookin after mum im sure you are all the best champ take care xxxx"
"At 9 years old Stefan came into my care for about three weeks. I remember his laughter, his chats with his mum on the phone and his love of his Hawthorn football club. We kept contact on an off for a period of time. I was pleased to be able to see him several times in his last year of life. I was impressed and inspired by his love of religion and the great faith that had a foot in the door with several different faith traditions. When he left my care he cried. We had bonded and he felt secure but he was pleased to be back with his mum. He loved his mum very much."
"You are always in my heart Stef, I still go through my mb gallery and always look at the 3 beautiful photos of you... You will never be of of all of our thoughts xxx"
"Happy 22nd Birthday for 6th March Stefan
Always sending our love to you,
Bronwyn,Greg,Jon and Jamie.xxxx
Love and kisses to you too Wendy.xxxx"
""Happy Birthday" to my beautiful Son Stefan - 22yo today. I did not get to see you grow into a Man, but I can only imagine what a man you would have been.
"His little arms crept 'round my neck, and then I heard him say, 4 simple words I wont forget, words that made me pray. They turned a mirror on my soul, on secrets no-one knew, they inspired me, I hear them now, He said "I'll be like You".
Stefan My Child, I carry You with Me Always & Forever in My Thoughts and in My Heart xx"
when I ride my Motor Scooter Your baby Rattle
reminds me we still walk and Ride together
You would haven 22 years old on 6th March
But age will never weary you Your for ever young"
"Sometimes God picks a flower that's still in full bloom. Sometimes the flower that is chosen, we feel He's picked too soon.We're at peace knowing; in God's heavenly garden, He has placed the ones we treasure.You have changed our lives forever.
When we clse our eyes we can see you, When we whisper your name we can hear you, And when we reach with our hearts we can touch you.
rest in peace sweet angel

"Stefan, I am thankful for the blessing of the time that you did have with me on this earth. Though I will never understand why that time was so short, it was strong in love. Wendy (Mum)"
"to my beautiful wendy you have a beautiful heart just like your son you are both connected in heart and spirit, embrace that some higher force knew how special he was and he has been called for a higher purpose, and have no doubt that he is looking down on you wendy my friend, so ever proud of his beautiful mum looking forward to being together again one day. xoxo my beautiful friend."

You're never alone, I'm always near,

If you need a shoulder to cry on,

"TO ALL SPECIAL MUMMIES
We are lonely apart but together we're strong
All of our precious babies are gone
some people ask if we are feeling down.
Some of them notice a tear or a frown
Most of them don’t and we carry on
Hiding our sadness inside.
They tell us our grief wont last for long
They ask us if we are moving on?
We're not, we're just pretending well
it's a lovely sunny day today and I am thinking about you and your incredible mum,love and kisses to you both.xxxooo"
I only knew you in the last years of your life but in that short time I felt like I knew you an eternity.

The song is right Wendy."Gone to soon" xxx"
