George's 18th Birthday

Today should have been George's 18th birthday. Instead it's just a little over three months since his death, on April 25th 2011. We miss him always but today it hurts so much more because we know how much it would have meant to him. He should have had a whole life to look forward to...

Although we are consoled by the knowledge that he knew how much we loved him, and that he loved us in return, the injustice of it all is still hard to deal with.The world moves on, but for us, the world is a poorer place without him.

  1. They say "You don't know what you have until it is gone" but I think everyone who knew George knew exactly how special he was. As his cousin, who has loved him like a brother from the moment he was born, I can honestly say I was honoured to know him and although today is one of the many painful days we will have to face without him, I raise my glass to my perfect cousin and toast his courage, his bravery, his kindness and his huge heart. To know him for 17 years was a massive honour. Happy 18th Birthday Georgie, forever in our hearts and minds. xxxx
