The Final Farewell by Kirstie Bedford

I was very privileged to be asked for my comments recently on an article that was written by Kirstie and published in the Sydney Morning Herald. She has kindly given me her permission to share her story here, so that it may help others who have had to experience a bereavement of a loved one during the pandemic.


Kirstie had to watch her dad take his last breath on a video call and lives with the

enormous sadness of not yet being able to say a proper "goodbye" to her dad, along with being away from her family members. It's a beautifully written and very moving piece, which you will find in the link below:
