A big thank you to everyone who prayed for my dear MIL.


She died this morning Monday 13th February at 10.00am. We believe she had a heart attack. I'll know more this evening when Trev gets home.

I was at Ryke's award presentation at his school when we received the news. He got Sports captain for his final year of primary school. Love to all Chris.

So sorry for your loss Chris. May God give your family great comfort and assurance at this sad time.

The Rose Beyond The Wall

A rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall...

One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side

Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted - the rose blooms there-
its beauty even greater now, nurtured by
God's own loving care.

Oh! I'm sorry Shirley and hope that the peace which God gives us will encompass you at the funeral.

Unfortunately for us it's a 5 hour car trip down to Canberra and and when we return another 5 hours. Love Chris

Yes Viv, we can hold on to that thought. Mum went very quickly once the diagnosis was given. Because she didn't want any intervention it hastened her death. I'm so happy to have so many wonderful people thinking of me. It's brought me great peace. Love Chris

Thank you everyone. We don't know anything more at the moment. There is not going to be an autopsy so we assume that her heart just gave up.

Trev and Amy said she had a lot of chest pain with tingling arms, sore jaw and tightness across her chest on Saturday- and her morphine and the other drug were increased. ❤️ Chris
