We buried our son Deon in the Birdsville Cemetery in 1996. The cemetery houses many old gravesites, bearing witness to the people who lived and worked in and around Birdsville in the early 1900s through to today.
We’ve planted some trees in the years since he passed, and we go there often to remember him.
Sometimes we sit on his gravestone like our daughter Jenna is doing in this photo.
His headstone reads, ‘Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same.’
