A very special letter from Avril's Aunt & Uncle in Canada
Dear Avril,
I saw your FB post this morning with Oliver's beautiful face, and began responding. However, I decided I'd Email you instead. Oliver was a most remarkable little boy! He was blessed with a kind heart; an understanding mind; intelligent and so very handsome. He didn't deserve the lost years. His loss was the most traumatic and horrendous in your lives, and touched so many more, including ours! Somehow Oliver's spirit is so strong he has never, and will never leave your heart, and the hearts of all who cherished and loved him. His heart entwined with yours has given you the strength and drive to work together for the good of other children. The time and effort you give to other children gives so much pleasure and spreads so much more love. You couldn't do this without Oliver always with you! Without a doubt, this is what Oliver would have dreamed of. It may be called The Dream Factory - but it's your 'Oliver's Dream Factory'! He is proud of you - your family are, and most certainly our family - and of course, your many friends! The generosity and importance of the sponsors, major companies and individuals are with the Dream Factory because they see it is a special, loving, worthwhile cause for the many children and young people who always have their own dream. It gives them Hope! The 'Dreams' will go on forever! May our Oliver's 'Dream Factory' continue on - Always!💞 Love from us All - to you, Emma and Joshxoxox
