Balloons for Noah

The day of Noah's school memorial service we were given a very thoughtful gift from Steph and Eden.  Chloe came up to us after the service with a disposable helium tank and said 'here you go - now you can send Noah special balloons whenever you want'.  We loved it so much. I didn't even know you could buy such a thing. 

Since then we have taken helium balloons up to Noah's grave a couple of times. It's nice just being able to do it whenever we feel like it, without having to worry about getting them from a shop, especially if it's a Sunday afternoon.  About a month ago we decided to walk into Noah's grave from the back way, where you park on the street and have to go through a bit of bush to get to the cemetery.

It was actually a nice little walk, but we had no clue where we were going, but finally found the right track to get to his grave.

The boys love being able to release their own balloons whenever they want to.   Thanks Eden and Steph for such a beautiful present.

It's still surreal to sit at Noah's grave and think about what has happened over the last 7 weeks. It still doesn't seem real, and I wonder if it ever will.


  1. Great present, I'm betting it was a Steph idea :)

  2. Balloons, I always think of them as such happy things. I bet Noah would have loved it.

  3. such a wonderful gift, I know Noah loves his balloonw

  4. just think ...he is there catching those balloons all filled with your love....when you go again send him a Nettie Kiss on one of those balloons for me please...I am always blowing them heavnward when i am out in my garden ..but i am sure they would get there on balloon faster.


We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
