Terrible, terrible, terrible news.
My brother law has been killed.  He has a fishing charter business, and had his boat up on the beach and was cleaning it…the boat rolled on top of him and despite the workers best efforts, they could not move it.  It weighs 18 tonnes.  By the time rescue got there it was too late.
He is married to one of my sisters, and they live in Darwin.  We are all in shock. I have spoken to her, and to my neice and it would have to be one of the most horrendously heartbreaking phone calls i have ever had.  The pain, excruciating to listen to, and being all the way down the other end of Australia, being unable to hug them is just terrible.
So, my other sister and i are flying up there on Sunday, until Thursday. We feel its best to go now, to be with her now.  I know we cant do a lot for them, but even being able to do the dishes, or sit and listen.  This is the time that family is most important.  My heart breaks for them. 
So, not much more to say, in truth, what can anyone say to make it better.
I hope you are all well and happy, talk soon,
Bye for now, Kathryn xxxTo live, that would be a great adventure – Peter Pan
