Hey my Prince, Wish you were here so I could shower you in gifts, hugs and kisses and wish you a "Happy Valentines Day". I can hear you saying "commercial rubbish, who needs a day to remind them to say they love you." But I reckon you secretly loved it, cause you always bought a card and present. I'm sending my love and hugs to you my beautiful. Miss you like crazy. Love forever. Jo xxxxxxxx

Hey My Beauty, Well we moved, still heaps of unpacking to do. Felt dreadful handing in the keys to "our place", like losing another piece of us. There doesn't seem to be any point to any of this without you, no happiness or excitement. All of my joy left with you I think........... You would love Olivia's room though, not finished but so far looks very nice. I am so sad baby, I need a hug from you my precious. Love you. Jo

Precious it's our last night sleeping in this house, the only home that we ever shared. It feels so sad, we came here as two and should have been leaving as three, a family. I am so pissed off and sad, it is just so unfair. I keep thinking about how our life should have been, we should have been moving into our own home as a family. It's so bloody hot as well Davo, wish you were here so we could winge and complain together. I miss you baby. Some days it still does not feel real, I still expect you to walk through the door. Wish you could. You would have a lot of nappy changes to catch up on. Hope you come with us Darling. Olivia and I need you with us. Love you babe. ALWAYS & FOREVER. Jo xxxxxxxxxxx

Hey Sweetie, Well today is 7 months since I lost you, feels like yesterday, whilst at the same time feels like ages............ Bob's birthday today. We went to "The Dam" for lunch. I was thinking about all the times that we went there, I thought it must have been at least 30 times. The lady with the grey/blonde hair asked where I had been and why I had not been in for ages, I told her I had a baby and she came over to meet her. Like everyone, she thought that Liv was just gorgeous. They didn't have any nachos on the menu. don't know if I could have stomached them without you anyway, no wings either, although they still had your burger. Food was only average, but we thought that last time we went I think, I was pregnant and missed having a beer. It was so hot inside today and the flys outside were horrendous. I had a smile when I thought about the time we tried to eat outside and our meal was swamped by a million flies. So many nice memories of flex's, holiday's and weekend lunches at that place though. Think it was over one of those huge wooden tables that I felt the first twinges of love for you, so many laughs and brilliant conversations as well. I miss you gorgeous. So many first's without you and each one hurts as much as the one before............... Love you forever Jo xxxxxxx

Hi Sweet Boy, The packing has started, little Liv is helping, although she is taking more things out of boxes than putting them in. Perhaps like me ,she doesn't want to leave here. I know I have the memories in my heart, but I feel close to you here and am so worried that I will lose them. Not that I could ever forget you, you were way to awesome to be forgetable. Had a chat to Andro today and it brought back so many memories, especially how very funny you were. Made me smile and laugh thinking of some of the things you used to say. Olivia says "mum mum" now, she is hysterical Dave, so very funny (how could she not be with us as parents) she touches things she is not allowed too and continually shacks her head "no", but does it anyway. I so wish you could see her. I have been thinking, if I could have you back for a day, I think I would let you spend it with Olivia. Although I would make sure I got a few good hugs and kisses from you as well. I love and miss you so very much my precious. You are in my heart and thoughts always and forever. Your sweet Jo xxxxxxxxxxxx

"I'm a goose" as you would have said, have not been able to work out why nobody else could post on this site and just realised that the settings were all wrong. It seems that I was keeping it all to myself. Sorry everybody, hopefully situation is fixed. Post away and keep remembering our Davo. Anyways my boy, our princess is 8 months old now, she is a cherub. Walks along the lounge already, I am trying to pack and she keeps chewing the boxes and eating the paper. I love touching your things, and thinking that you touched them last, most of which are coming with us. Your music collection wow some suprises that gave me a laugh. I have tried, but Iron Maiden is really not for me. I love you precious, miss you gorgeous. Feels like forever since I last saw you. Jo

Well 2011 now - the start of the first year without you my darling. I spent last night trying to think of happy memories of you, I thought of some good ones, but the sadness of not having you kept pushing it's way through. I miss you cherub. I was cuddling Liv at midnight and gave her loads of kisses from us both. I tell her a lot about you, primarily I tell her how very much you loved her and that you will be in her heart and her daddy forever. I spent the day obsessively taking pictures of our princess, her nose kinda pinches at the sides when she smiles, just like yours, although I don't have many pictures of you with a huge smile, but I remember how beautiful your smile was. Miss your smile, your hugs, your laugh and especially your kisses. You are in my heart every moment of everyday my prince. Be with us everyday of 2011 and forever Davo! Love always Jo and Livvy

Its been just past 6 months since you left us. I finally took the boat out from under the tarps, gave it a wash and sat in the chair you sat in and thought long about you and the time onboard; and just the time in general. I found the sun screen you left in the glove box..... and I had to smile. I remember the times we went fishing and you were wearing thongs, long trackies and a flano and straw hat ...."Campbelltown finest" you would say. And you still got burnt. We caught those fish though eh!!! I'm taking my girls out to catch some lizards and bream. Hopefull in the fullness of time Liv will join us as we set off from the wharf with a laugh and smiles...for we embark on our journey into the unknown ... and hopefully we will return with fish! My thoughts and more importantly my prays to your family Dave, your partner Jodie and your girl Liv (you know she looks like you). This is a hard time for all. I pray that God comforts you all, and provide peace both in your hearts and minds. Grace and peace to you all. Captain Kordic

Hey Sweetie, Well Christmas is over, hopefully I didn't make it too miserable for everybody, I kept a brave front and only took a few moments alone to cry for what we have lost - YOU. It was so lonely without you, can't believe that you have been gone for 6 months already, still feels so raw. I keep having to remind myself that you are not coming back, I can't wait for my life to be over, cause I want to be with you. Secretly I hope that I don't live a long life, although I want to keep my promise to you and look after Olivia and give her a good life. I'm filling her with love Dave, hopefully she feels it, for every hug and kiss I give her, I give her one from you. But I kinda believe that you are giving them to her anyway, she seems to know you, not sure how, but I show her pictures of you and she smiles. You still obsessively says "dad". Hope you hear her. It's Boxing Day, I can't stop thinking about what we would be doing if you were here, princess is asleep, we would be relaxing and talking about our babes first Xmas. Instead I am sitting here alone, not even any Xmas leftovers or plates of ham (I remember how much you loved Xmas ham). The presents are still in the car. Being around other people reminds me of how very alone I am without you. I miss you my prince and love you to the moon and back a million trillion times. You should be here, it is so wrong that you are not.................. I don't feel you anymore, maybe you are having a party with Elvis, no Bon Scott I'm sure. Love to you always Jo

Hello Jodie - As one wife to another, as one mum to another - I understand your grief. If ever you want to 'chat' to someone who is/ has been in your shoes - maybe I can give you an insight into how things went for me in the first 6 months, first year, ... Its a life of cliches but - there is life. Take care. Look after yourself and your little girl. Belinda60 XX I don't want to post my email address here but you can facebook me anytime and we can take it from there. Belinda Dalglish

Hey my Darling, Hopefully you already know everything that I tell you in these messages, but it kinda helps to write to you anyway. Liv and I hung out with your folks today, went visiting some of your relos and then saw Nic and Pip and gorgeous Charlie. Your parents are awesome, not that anything makes it O.K that you are gone, but made me realise that you must have had a great childhood and were loved and adored always. Made me feel good to know that! You should have been with us though. Liv and I are buying a house, it's nice, although I feel really apprehensive to leave this place where we lived together. Kinda like losing you again and letting go of what we had, of us.............Hard to explain. We should have been doing this together. Hopefully it will be nice for Olivia and I know how much you hated paying rent. Liv is growing so much, she is lovely, she says Dad, often at the top of her voice. We miss you and I love you so very very very much. Jo

I miss you precious. Phil and Nic had their baby, he is gorgeous, little Charlie David McDonagh. Hopefully you have seen him, everyone says that you are with us always, so maybe you have. I don't know how I am going to do this, just everything without you. It hurts so bad my sweet. I wish I could fast forward my life, raise our daughter and be with you again...........................even better rewind it and have you back, healthy & strong. Together with Olivia we could have Utopia. You were the technical wiz, you should have left instructions for me on how the life remote control works. If only hey? We were robbed. Love you always

Hey Davo, Little Liv is 6 months old today, I remembered to take her picture at exactly 9.28am. All of the things that we talked about, I will try to remember to do, I will take her photo on Xmas Eve when she is asleep every year and her birthday Eve.........everything is so hard without you my boy. I was thinking about getting the family photos like we wanted, when she was bigger, but it's not much of a family without you. Three is a family, two is just two............... I'm preparing to move her into her cot, I remember the conversation that we had about how it would feel the first time she slept in it, how many times we would check on her, where we would stand etc... Wish you were here to share it, I miss you, my life is crap without you, my smiles are not real and I have a constant lump in my throat. Thinking of you, Loving you and missing you everyday......you were my world and now you are gone Love you forever. Jo xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Dave, still can't believe you're gone.....so glad Dragons won! :) Maybe you've met my Dad by now and if you have no doubt you're both celebrating that win! To Dave's family, I'm so sorry to you all. I wanted to write something here after Dave's funeral but just didn't know how.... I hope all is well with you all. I worked with Dave at the Helpline and shared many good laughs with him. All my love to you all. Glenda xxxx

Dave still not a day goes by that we dont think about you OMG why ? Still cant get my head around why this has happened you were loved by all. Life can be so cruel. I wish I could wave a magic wand and bring you back particularly for our dearest Jo Jo and Olivia. I sit at Gossy and think you will walk past my desk and you dont. Oh how we all miss you everyday. xx

Hey Sweetpea, Our anniversary today, would have been 3 years and it's exactly 3 months since you have been gone. 2 years, 9 months as a couple is not nearly enough, even add the years that we were friends and still not enough. I wanted you forever. I remember when we made the decision to try for a baby, we made the commitment to be together forever. Well we were, but only your forever. You will be in my heart always and our love is still strong in our precious baby................. Well, darling finally your Dragons have made a Grand Final again. One point win over the Tigers to make it, I was cheering them on. Liv and I will be watching the Grand Final and I will even let her wear Red and White, her Dragons bib and hat and she can hug your Dragons teddy. Can't promise that she will not be wearing the doggies thongs next season though! Love and miss you baby. Thanks for coming through in my reading, was nice to know that you are still with us. I would love a hug from you now though. Jo
