Suicide – My Experiences, Seeking Help, Statistics

28 September 2018

The first time I experienced the loss of someone to suicide I was 19. Our family friends lost their teenaged son, Chris. He was just 16 years old. We had grown up with them and spent all our holidays together. My best childhood memories were spent with them, swimming and fishing on the beaches of…

How Our Garden Memorials Keep Memories Alive

04 November 2017

Christmas time is approaching once again. A time for celebrating with family and friends, but also another special occasion without the loved ones we are missing. My Dad was a big character, the lovable larrakin and his absence is hard not to notice when we are all together. He was the biggest, the loudest and…
