A Hard Post to Write

Rest In Peace 
Jasinta and Rebecca. 
Our thoughts and prayers are with your families.

It has been a traumatic week...

Last Tuesday night the 4th December, 
two young lives were taken away...

Our family (daughter, son in law and grandson) live  next door to Jasinta, pictured above.

Our family regularly travel that dark road where Jasinta's life was ended...

I thank God, that on this day, for some reason, my daughter's work roster was changed. She normally works on a Tuesday night and would have been travelling home in the early hours...

Here is Jess, as she was lovingly called, with one of my daughter's ponies.

Life can change in a instant.

Please give your loved ones a big hug.



  1. So very tragic and a waste of young lives. I'm glad they got the guy so Quorn residents can at least sleep knowing he's caught. Bet it's been a terrible time for your daughter.


  2. So sad. Sick sick people in this world hurt innocent good people. Glad he was caught, hope he never gets out. Thought are with your family.

  3. Oh Tania, how tragic! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. xoxo

  4. We hear these things on the news almost daily but when it is someone you know it seems so much more "real",such a sad story Tania,poor little darlings.

  5. Tania, Thank you for sharing! What a sad event and so close to the Holiday Season too! Sending thoughts and prayers for the families so afflicted!
    How right you are: we must remember to be more grateful our loved ones are safe and sound!
    God bless,

  6. Such a tragic series of events to hit such a normally peaceful corner of Australia! My thoughts and prayers are with you all there.

  7. So sad to hear news like this, my thoughts are with you all and the families.

  8. That is so awful. How dreadful. Thoughts with you and the families and the poor girls.

  9. This is so sad. Sending you hugs as you deal with the loss of your friend.
