When Pauline, David’s sister suggested the family dedicate a bench she could see the value of celebrating the lives of their parents. But the experience has become much more than remembering the past.
Over the years each of David and Mary’s four children has made a different part of Australia their home, while their families have grown to span many generations. Their parent’s bench is a beacon uniting the family for special occasions and helping them feel connected when they visit.
For Pauline this special place ties together the many threads of her life. Pauline brings her grandson to visit, while her niece talks fondly of jogging past each morning. Pauline’s husband has also dedicated the neighbouring bench just up the hill to his parents.
