Today was exhausting for everyone but CJ was an amazing little trooper. Still far to young to understand what was happening and why everyone was so subdued and emotional, he coped the best way he could and smiled at everyone. His behaviour during the service was excellent and there were no tears from him when he was past around the many people who wanted a cuddle from him.

In years to come we will explain what happened and that he was there and what a difference he made, even if he didn’t realise what a help he was!

Many thanks to everyone who helped during the days leading up to the service, during the service and the days that followed. All the love, support, meals and stories meant so much to us.
