I feel too sad to write much. And I didn't actually know Nathan well. His twin brother Tommy I got to know a little bit better through my work with little Karuta Queen. In tragic news Nathan died today in Sydney. The fact that they managed to get him home before he died is a very small consolation.
His loss is immeasurable. His family's pain must be indescribable. He got married to Whitney in February, she's been by his bed since he fell ill. Can you imagine losing your soulmate and the love of your life?? The grief must be immeasurable and I can hardly bear to think about it. To Tommy who's lost his twin, and his parents who've lost their son.
Slipper Day will be a grey and dark affair. Blue falls the rain? I think that this is true.
