In loving memory of Joshua Simpson

This page has been set up in memory of Josh Simpson, a wonderful man who has sadly passed away way too soon. This page gives us all a way to support the Simpson family, even though we can't all be there to support them in person.

Part of the money raised will be put into a trust fund for Amanda and Josh's baby and part of the money will go to charitable organisations, as suggested by Amanda (details below).

In his final days, Josh was helped by many fantastic people and at the request of Amanda, this money will be donated to these organisations: ICU unit in Hobart, Flying Doctors, Ambulance Service and Tasmanian organ donation service, Donate Life! 

This page as been set up to donate in Australian dollars (conversion rate is about £0.56 to $1 AUS)

Thank you xx

Poet, David Harkin, conveys such a beautiful message in his poem:

He is gone

You can shed tears that he is gone
Or you can smile because he has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
