    My deepest sympathy to this family whose circle was broken. Love, understanding, support during Darwin’s life, taken to soon, was unconditional. Family bonds in this family transcend all else. I am with you in spirit Lyn and Gavin and the family will find strength together because that is what they do. Amy, Andrew and children, Carol and Tom give strength to each other and try to celebrate the short, but incredible life of Darwin. He was an amazing young man. Lyn and Gavin you were the best parents and friends to your son .
    . RIP dear Darwin .. my love and heart are with you
