Thoughts and Memories of Gavin Capes

Father of Lachlan (aged 2 at the time of his accident) and step-father to Caitlin (aged 7 at the time of his accident): He was a highly motivated person who was determined to try every opportunity life offered him which is how it came about that he was on that flight on Australia Day. Every year on Australia Day, the three of us have a very emotionally confusing day, trying to carry on with life as normal as we can and celebrate the day with the rest of Australia knowing that that was also the day we wished had never existed. All of his family miss him terribly and will never stop loving him.
