Sad news

Sad times here on Cabbage Tree Farm, as we are grieving the loss of our stillborn baby boy Lawrence (born 11/9). Took us completely by surprise.

We had a small family ceremony here yesterday. What a beautiful day it was too. We planted a kahikatea tree down in our patch of bush in remembrance of Lawrence and scattered his ashes nearby.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all of our friends, neighbours, family and the wonderful Maungaturoto community for all the gifts of flowers, food, kind thoughts and offers of support.

Bridget - I cannot believe I have just read this news, I am so very sorry. From so far away I can do nothing but send my heartfelt thoughts to you and all your family. I do however believe that there will be one more star twinkling in the sky tonight.
