I know you were with us and Ethan on the 16th Dec, when he and Aleisha got married. Lisa has a new man, he seems very nice, he certainly looks after her and she seems to be very happy at last. We all miss you so much. love you heaps. Mum PS can you give Grandma and also Aunty Gladys a big hug for me please

You'd be so happy to see that Lisa's life has turned around for the good, Fred and I are finally coming back home for good at theend of this year, but welcoming over in Feb for holiday and look for a house, plus Jimmy is getting married. Buddy is doing so well, she has lovely little boy. Love and miss you heaps Wayne.

On Monday 31st Oct, I had a dream, I was standing beside your bed and telling Susan to let you go, she didn't want you to go and I told her, she had to let you go it was what you wanted. I haven't had that dream for quite awhile now, I wondered if it was because I'd been thinking about you the nite before. Really misss you so much Wayne. Alison now has a photo of you and her together.

Wayne passed just before midnite on the 8th January 2009, I am so thankful to be able to get over to NZ before he passed away, he had all his family around him at the time of passing. Gone to young BUT wil never be forgotten. Love you Wayne, Mum. Lisa was the only one not there, she wasn't able to say goodbye to you.
