Dearly missed...


Just taking a moment to remember this precious guy who is dearly missed.



The fun, arty guy who was always making someone laugh, a great surfer, and pretty much the only kid in our school who could ride a unicycle.  He was a great brother who taught me all the essentials in life... like how to freeze bees, how to spear eels and how to set paper on fire using only a magnifying glass and the sun.


He always let me sleep in his spare bed when there was a storm, and graciously let me tag along when he went over to our elderly neighbours place to watch her weekly video recordings of The A-Team and MacGuyver.  I wish I had kept the mix tapes we used to make together and recordings of our own radio station - such classic memories.

Tomorrow it will be 11 years since he passed, but it honestly feels like it was only just yesterday.

  2. ((Hugs)) Kristy, I can't believe 11 years have already gone, I guess the pain of losing a loved one never really goes away. At least He will live on in your hearts

    Hi darling Kristy, I always get conmfort in a couple of lines of a chorus we used to sing "Standing somewhere in the shadows you'll find Jesus, He's the one who always cares and understands" you are much loved and although we didn't get to know Jamie all that well, we know he was very precious to you. Hug Hug.

  14. Lovely memories Kristy. He sounds like an outstanding brother. I can see the talent for having fun (unicycle riding and bee freezing) runs in the family. Big hugs.x (ps my word verification for this message is 'undis' which I'm taking as a message that you MUST crochet that pattern I linked you to. ;o) )

  27. Heart breaking, to lose your sibling, too horrible to imagine. I'm sure there are lots of amazing parts of him in your children. Oh tapes of your own radio station, what a shame you only have the memories!! Very sad for you & your family missing such a vital person from your life, love Posie
