For Nathan


Too young, too precious. Thank you Darling Boy for being such a good friend & mate to our son Lachie. I can still hear your laughter as you both kicked the footy around the yard - two energetic little boys just having fun after school. You fought your short, devastating battle with strength, courage & dignity.

What a privilege it's been to watch you grow into a truly wonderful young man. At 27 you were a loving husband to Sara & an amazing new Daddy to baby Liam, a cherished brother to Prue & a beloved son to Karen & Tim. You will be remembered always - God bless.

And, when he shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of Heaven so fine That all the world will be in love with night And pay no worship to the garish sun.
