Lauren passed away at Castlemaine Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Loz what can I say I’m absolutely heart broken, my eyes hurt I’ve cried so much and I’ve never felt pain and devastation when I heard you take your last breath but I’m now at peace knowing you are in a better place and now pain free.
Your fight and commitment to trying to beat cancer is a credit beyond words, any normal person would have given up a long time ago and that strength and courage is a trait which you have passed onto myself and more importantly your children.
Loz, Jade doesn’t understand yet but in time your memory to her will never be forgotten and she will see your face through photos and we will say goodnight to you every night ♥️.
Telling Bailey yesterday you would not be coming home was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. The little guy was crushed, I was crushed. Time will slowly heal that pain. You’ve raised him to be such a great kid it’s a credit to you. One good thing is I don't need to see you throw his home schooling across the room anymore 😂😂 but I promise to push him with his education & sport to be the best he can.
I also promise you to be the best father to our kids I possibly can. I promise to take the responsibility and grasp it with 2 hands to raise them with balanced views, respect and love for others, kindness, good manners and to laugh in the good times and make sure we are talking through the bad all traits that will be passed down from there beautiful mother. Those 2 kids love you with all there heart. The next part of my journey is not going to be easy but I’m so blessed to have such supportive family and friends around us.
To Bri I’m so sorry you were stuck so far away having to deal with this but I’m glad you got to FaceTime her before she left. She was so sick but so determined to make the phone call to you herself ♥️.
To her other beautiful friends, you know who you are, thank you so much for your ongoing help, support and more importantly being great friends to her over these really trying times, it will never be forgotten and I’m forever grateful it makes me get emotional just thinking about you guys. To my great mates who have been there right by my side all the way checking in and looking over me.
Love you guys and thanks for having a beer or 2 last night ♥️.
Lauren’s mum and sisters, I’m glad you got to spend some quality time all together with her on Wednesday, to see the 4 of you together again was great to see, that’s all she’s ever wanted ♥️.
My family Mum, Dad, Liam, Sharz, Hayley, Kai, Brett and Di, I love you guys so much Thankyou. Yous treated Lauren as one of our own and she absolutely loves being apart of our family. She loves you all so much it hurts. Your generosity, love & support is beyond words, dropping anything at the drop of a hat to help anytime needed with Loz & the kids. You guys are everything ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️.
Just a final Thankyou to everyone the food, the support, the flowers, the beer,
it may not seem like much to some but honestly it’s really helped so much the last few months.
My work, you guys are just amazing, you know who you are, thank you so much for the support ♥️♥️♥️.
I’ve probably missed so much and so many people and I’m so sorry but I love you 👍.
Loz I love you so much 💔💔💔💔.
I’ll miss my fishing buddy, my wood collector, I’ll miss your laugh and shit sense of humour and you not getting any jokes that are told 😂.
I’m so glad you got 1 final trip to Noosa & Portarlington this year, 2 places you absolutely love and I will continue to take the kids for years to come and create more memories for the next faze of our lives but also remembering yours💔.
I’m just bloody heartbroken your not in bed with me this morning.
Love you and goodbye my STAR 😢😢💔💔💔
