Barry's Wish - Short Family Break
Barry had Lung and Cervical Spine Cancer. His daughter Tamara nominated him to go to Mannum SA and stay in a cabin on the river for 2 nights with his 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren and spend a relaxing weekend away and do some fishing and have a bbq.
Their whole family travelled the 4 hours to Mannum to take family photos and a keepsake and memory of some very special times together.We organised for them to have a 3 night stay in a riverfront cabin - Tamara said seeing her dad relaxing in the chair on the deck overlooking the river watching the pelicans was incredible.
It was just what their family needed to create some lasting memories. Tamara said, "I would just like to thank you Jen and The Orange Pigeon for everything you done for our family it was truly precious to see dads face light up having his whole family together at the most picturesque place dad loves! Thank you so much! We are forever grateful. I just have to say that we were treated like we were special! My dad grinned the whole time we had tea! We were waited on , bar and food service and it was fabulous with the best view in the house! I am so grateful. I hope it wasn't too much the bill! when I do get some time I will helping promote in any way / fundraise for this organisation will be forever in my heart ! Dad has perked right up and after a couple of magical days! As I can't say it enough I will be forever grateful for this opportunity! Thanks so much."
Thank you to the Mannum Caravan Park for their kindness in offering a discounted rate for Barry and his family.
RIP Barry 15.11.58 - 11.1.14
