thank you. the last few words of 'queen victoria' ('incomparable sense of loss') seem to have an increasingly personal meaning to this old fellow, these days. my daughter loved leonard's work. i will miss her so much. but (and using the words i just texted to someone in england), i have the strength needed to stand up again. greetings (and a sad picture) from this broken hill. -geoffrey

Like Tindella,say's I don't know what as happen to your lovely daughter. Again like Tinderella, your picture says a lot. Geoffery, even though I do not know you personally, I just want to come and give you a very big HUG. I am sending my good thoughts to you. And which ever God you follow, may he be with you at this time. xx

thank you, thank you, thank you for the enormous support your messages bring. after having now lost a sister, mother and wife - all within such a short time - i am becoming an authority on pain, on hurt. it's a depressing business, and i apologise profusely for having a need to share personal sorrow with you. please forgive me this one time. my precious daughter left me ten days ago, a tragic accident. she had so many plans, had just booked a holiday in UK, was an intelligent and optimistic girl. because of circumstances, a funeral will not be until sometime out in july. once again, eternally appreciative of the warmth in the words that are being received. - love g

Dear dear Geoffrey. My heart goes out to you. There are no words......
We are all thinking of you now and hoping you get some comfort from these messages, they are small and just words but they are from our hearts to yours.

You have had more than your fair share of pain, its so unfair. What was your daughters name and maybe you can publish a photo of her when you feel like it .

Life is strange and unfathomable at times. May your memories of her linger forever. Her energy is with your beautiful wife now and I hope that gives you some kind of comfort

Love Bernadine
