  4. Nathan

    My heart is unequivocally shattered that you are no longer here. I’m sorry you didn’t feel good enough for this world. I’m also sorry that this world wasn’t good enough for you. Your gentle soul and kind nature will be remembered forever. Your quick whit and crafty humour will be something I miss most with our classroom. You came so far. You battled your demons for so long. I am so unbelievably proud of the person you were and I wish we saw what you would become. Although I only knew you for a short time, you have made a lasting impact.

    You had your life mapped out. Your hopes and dreams we talked about in detail. Your plan to get there and how excited you were to grow up. Our weekly catch up were something I always looked forward to. We didn’t have the best start, in fact you tried to avoid me for 4 months. But we worked together and figured it out, and blossomed into an important relationship. We did your first prac session together at Brauer and I will forever remember the smile on your face playing soccer. You were the most uncoordinated person I’ve ever seen but it filled me with so much joy that you tried. We pushed each others boundaries in the best of ways and I am honoured to have taught you.

    I will miss our conversations. I will miss our quick banter in class. I hope you have found peace.

    To your beautiful family I send my love and deepest of sympathies.

    With Love
