George Hayden Diamond was born on the 22nd of June 2000, the first of five little Diamonds which his parents, Vic and Shayla, were to welcome into their family.

George was always a wonderful friendly boy; cheeky, loving and kind. He was dedicated and caring, and very committed to his family and friends; a protective son and older brother as well as a mate. He was a great support to everyone, including his three brothers, Perry, Christian and Isaiah, and his sister, Eva. In recent years, he was particularly supportive and protective of his grandfather after his grandmother lost her battle with breast cancer in 2017. Georgie always put everyone else first. It was his greatest gift to the world - loving and supporting others.

Unfortunately, on Monday the 18th of February 2019, George suffered a brain haemorrhage, and despite the wonderful work of the ambulance officers and the staff at The Alfred Hospital, the damage was too severe, and the decision was made to turn off his life support, as our beautiful George was brain dead and would never come back to us. At 4:50pm on Thursday the 21st of February 2019, George passed away, surrounded by his family.

This Go Fund Me is dedicated to George, to help his family to pay for a funeral which should not be happening now. Nobody should ever have to bury their child, nor be restricted in how they celebrate his life, due to a lack of funds. George was such a great friend to us all, a person who gave us his love, comfort and support freely. Please donate anything that you can so his family can give George the send-off he deserves, and he can be laid to rest with his Grandmother Eva, Grandfather George, Grandmother Matina and Aunty Stella.

George, you will be forever missed, never forgotten.
Shine bright little Diamond, and guide us with your light from above, just like you guided us with your kindness here on Earth.

Our family is so overwhelmed with everyone’s love and support. The one question that we keep on being asked is.... How Can People Help Us. ... As Our Son’s death was sudden we have no savings for a Memorial and Headstone. As a parent you never ever EVER think that you will be burying one of your children ever! That’s NOT the way things are supposed to go it truly is the most saddest and traumatic thing in a Parents life, in a siblings life, In a grandparents life, a cousin, an Aunt and Uncle, and a friends life. Our George’s death has touched so so many hearts and we thank each and every one of those people you are all very special to us and will always be very special to us. For life!
So for all the people that are asking us how can they help we thought about it and said that we will like to give our son a headstone that all the people who will visit him will be proud of. George always checked in on his friends to make sure that they were ok, he was a very loyal friend a person who’s biggest hate was to let someone down. He worked very hard to never let anyone down and he never did he never let anyone in his life down.

Vic and I are so overwhelmed with all the love that everyone is showing for our George

This afternoon when I opened up Facebook I saw a photo of 3 of George’s friends with tattoos that they got in Memory of George.

How can two parents who have lost their handsome son not feel absolutely blessed that he has touched so many hearts in his very short life here on earth.

A message from George's mum.

"To each and every one of you beautiful golden hearted people who have donated to help us farewell our handsome Georgie.... Us Diamond’s have no words to truly express how grateful we are. We are people that don’t usually let other people in to help us. We are a very close family and up until now any sad situation we went through in life we could thank goodness get through it with the strength of our family. This is very different. This is above us and we are so blessed to have been given this support. It’s so overwhelming and very very heartwarming to see and feel all your love. I must be making no sense at all at the moment and I’m so so sorry for that. I just want to say thank you, thank you for loving oir amazing, handsome son George. ❤️ His smile I can’t believe I will never see his smile again"
- Shayla Diamond

When I set up this Go Fund Me at the family's request I never imagined we would make it even half way to our goal. The love and generosity shown realy highlights how much George was loved and how much his family is loved. We often forget this, as we go about our daily lives. Please remember to tell those you love that you love them as life can change in a heart beat.
