A sad day

Today is Stephanie Scott’s 28th birthday and her mother asked us all to join the family by stopping for a cup of tea and a mint slice (her favourite biscuit) at 3pm today. My workplace stopped to honour and remember Stephanie, it was a sombre tea break to say the least.

You may have heard of this but just in case you haven’t…..

A young teacher went into her school last weekend to complete work for while she was to be away on her honeymoon. She was due to be married within days. She was never seen again by her fiancée, her family or her friends. A massive search was undertaken.

What is thought to be her remains were found today, the day she was to be married to her childhood sweetheart. It is alleged that she was murdered by a cleaner at the school.

As the mother of a bride to be, I can’t begin to imagine how her fiancée and her family are coping with this awful tragedy. With everything ready for the wedding and guests arriving, the sadness would be…

      It probably didn’t make the news outside of Australia but it had rocked our country especially small towns similar to where it happened. It is an absolutely heartbreaking story. Thanks for your thoughts.
