Postcard from Captain Burke Park


Life has been a bumpy road of many twists and turns

It’s one step forward and two steps back

up and down I go

I get knocked down I get knocked back

On this long and winding road

to bounce back from adversity

at each and every turn

there is a lesson to be learnt

Something that’s called resilience as I drive along this road

Dear Todd

After 31 years I was able to visit the place you said your last words, thought your last thoughts. The place where your eyes saw the last thing they would ever see, the place where you heard your last sound, the place you smelt your last smell, the place you felt the last thing you touched. The awful place you took your final breath, alone, without us around to comfort you, protect you, and love you and to say goodbye.

I went to finally lay some flowers and say my proper goodbyes, for 31 years I have driven past that place wondering if your soul was trapped within those 4 walls. Now that they are tearing it down, I can wonder no more, you have been finally set free.

Fly with all your might mate.

You deserve to be free.

My love for you will never die.

Love Always
