2014 Walk to Remember

On Sunday 13 April TCF Brisbane held their Walk to Remember in New Farm Park.

Vera Caltabiano, TCF President, read a poem and thanked our special guests for coming along to support us once again, Robert Cavallucci MP Member For Brisbane Central and Vicki Howard Councillor for Central Ward who both also briefly addressed us.

Despite threatening rain, we set off shortly after 10am for our walk twice around New Farm Park.

Families came along from young to old, some in pushers and wheelchairs, to honour our beloved children who left us too soon.

We had a piper lead us on our walk and afterwards down to the river where a poem was read by Lyn Macklin before roses and rose petals were distributed to throw in the water in memory of our children.

Following this we all enjoyed a sausage sizzle in the park while we mingled with each other, sharing our stories, some quite recent and others many years along. It all added to the knowing that with support from The Compassionate Friends we need never walk alone.
