Photos of Daddy

Since Aaron's funeral, Kobe has kept his funeral program next to his bed. The other day I went to move it and take it out of his room and he yelled 'me leave it there 'cause my Daddy is on there in the bush and it's from his funeral' (the photo of Aaron on the front has some bushes behind him).  I asked him if he wanted to keep it there to look at, and he said he did so I put it back.

When I got Harri's favourite picture of Aaron printed off, I printed off one of the last photos I took of Aaron for him. It is of Aaron and Kobe fishing off the jetty at St Helens the day before he died.

When he saw it he was so happy and loves having it near his bed. The first night I put it in his room he came out crying after I put him to bed, and was sobbing saying 'me miss my Daddy so much'.  Now he just smiles at it and talks about the time they were fishing together. 

He still wants to keep Aaron's funeral program there as well.  I guess you can never have too many photos of your Daddy.


  1. Thats beautiful...whatever works to make him feel close to his Dad xx

  2. I just wanted to leave my love!

    You are an inspirtation! Thank you for sharing x

  3. So wonderful that he has that photo of him and his dad, Keeping those memories alive is so important. I was 6 when my dad died and don't have all the photos and stuff of my dad like your children. They are so blessed to have you as their mum, especially with all the photos that you have of Aaron and your children. Still love reading your blog Lisa, so beautiful.

  4. Oh that is beautiful. I love that photo!! I still have the funeral program just lying on our mantelpiece. I like seeing his photo on the front as I walk by.

  5. love love love! what a beautiful picture and memories x

  6. I became aware of your blog through Seven Cherubs, when she was raising funds for you and your family. Your story touched me as it has done many others. I have seven children and your husband passed on my husband's birthday. Every time I read one of your blogs, it reminds me of how precious our time is. How people that we love can be taken so quickly. Family is important to me and even more so having lost my own mother at 17. I admire your strength in continuing to live your life so beautifully for you and your sons after having to say goodbye far to soon to your husband and son. You are an inspiration to us all. Thank you.

  7. This makes my heart sad. I'm glad he can talk about all the good memories though...keep him talking so he'll always remember!!!

  8. Our poor little darling Kobe.
    He must miss Aaron so much, and he really can't express a lot at this age.
    I also love the photo of Aaron and Kobe smiling at each other, when you went Bicheno for your holiday.
    Love Mum.

  9. It's wonderful that he is able to feel closer to his dad through pictures.


  10. I read your blog every day! I am devastated for your loss, your boys remain in my prayers! You have a beautiful family...Stay strong and lean on God.
    With much love

  11. Such a sad thing to know this angelic little boy has to miss his daddy. He will no doubt treasure this picture his entire life.

  12. Lisa- I read your blog every day and I am amazed at your courage. This is the cutest picture of little Kobe. He has a smile that could light up the whole world. I hope you see your dear Hubby every time you look at this sweet little boy. Hang in there:) You have friends and even strangers who are all still praying for you and your boys. May you feel an added measure of peace this Easter weekend knowing that your son and husband will live again, just as our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ lives.
    Much Love sent your way,

  13. How wonderful to see his smile.
