One thought on “Share a Memory

  1. Let me be the first. This is my last memory of Barry; the last time I saw my son alive.

    Saturday, 13 May 2006:

    Mother’s Day was on the Sunday, but our family decided to go to lunch in a restaurant in a club on the Saturday. We were all there, which was great. We enjoyed a variety of foods, we laughed together and generally had a good time. Unfortunately, not many photos were taken.

    Barry and his older brother, Daniel (and his then girlfriend) went into the club itself and put a small amount of money into the pokies. They didn’t win anthing.

    Barry was relaxed, smiling and happy.

    Afterwards, on the way home, Barry asked if I could drop him off over his mate’s place. We pulled up, Barry got out. He kissed me, told me that he loved me, and said goodbye. I watched him walk up the driveway to his friend’s place and then I drove away.

    I often wonder if he knew then that he wouldn’t see me again. Although I spoke to Barry on the mobile several times in the next five days, I never suspected that the next time I was to see him would be at a viewing after his death.
