Comments & Other Poems From Face Book Group

Mark It has been one long year since you left. Really missing you. Life will never be the same without you. March 16, 2008 at 8:20pm

Dianne Mark, Chad and I would like to say thank you to Dean & Sinaed for braving this cold miserable wet weather to come and spend time with us on this very sad day and thank you so much for the lovely plant, we really appreciate your kindness. I know if Clint was here he would also appreciate it coz he saw you as a sort of big brother to him. Thank you also to everyone for the messages sent to us and for remembering today March 16, 2008 at 6:15pm

Dianne Today, a year ago was the last day I spent with my son, Clinton. Clint was involved in a motor cycle accident on Thursday 15 March 2007 and died of his injuries on Friday 16 March 2007 at 3 am. My life was at 3am on 16 March 2007 and still is destroyed March 16, 2008 at 6:11pm

Dianne Thank You Claire, your kind words are very much appreciated March 16, 2008 at 5:46pm




I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk,
But you didn’t see me playing Santa at the local mall.
I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant,
But you didn’t see me attending a meeting to raise more money for hurricane relief.
I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I drove by,
But you didn’t see me driving behind you when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.
I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children,
But you didn’t see me when I took time off from work to run toys to the homeless.
I saw you stare at my long hair,
But you didn’t see me and my friends cut ten inches off for Love of Locks.
I saw you roll your eyes at our leather coats and gloves,
But you didn’t see me and my brothers donate our old coats and gloves to those that had none.
I saw you look in fright at my tattoos,
But you didn’t see me cry as my children were born and have their name written over and in my heart.

I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere,
But you didn’t see me going home to be with my family.
I saw you complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be,
But you didn’t see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.
I saw you yelling at your kids in the car,
But you didn’t see me pat my child’s hand, knowing he was safe behind me.
I saw you reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road,
But you didn’t see me squeeze my wife’s leg when she told me to take the next turn.
I saw you racing down the road in the rain,
But you didn’t see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on his date.
I saw you run the yellow light – just to save a few minutes of time,
But you didn’t see me trying to turn right.

I saw you cut me off because you needed to be in the lane I was in,
But sadly you didn’t see me leave the road.
I saw you waiting impatiently for my friends to pass,
But you didn’t see me – I wasn’t there.
I saw you go home to your family,
But you didn’t see me.
Because I died the day you cut me off.
I was just a bikie.
A  person with friends and a family.
!!!!!!But, you didn’t see me!!!!!!!



Dianne Thank you Byron, yes there are many happy memories and times, but they don't take the pain away, it just makes it hurt even more, because the memories can and never will replace having him here where he belongs.
Yes he ws a true friend and touched so many lives and everyone who knew him was blessed to know him. It really touched me one day when our gardener, who had worked for us for less than a year when Clint died, watched one of the DVD's of Clint with tears in his eyes and asked me to please...
make him a copy of the DVD. At the time he only worked for us on a Friday and Clint was hardly eva at home on Friday, but he had touched this 25 year old man's heart, because he never looked down on anyone and was always friendly, polite and respectful.

Dianne Hi Janet, Going thru all the videos, which I could only watch a few weeks before I started Face Book brought so many smiles and laughter to us, but then straight away the pain comes flooding back. Every time I go on Face Book I just cry.

Janet Hi Dianne, I am really sorry it has not helped you. I think of you often. Love Janet

June 11, 2008 at 2:00pm

Dianne Thanks Janet, Sorry I only saw your msg's now. I don't go on Face book anymore only if I get a notification in my email. It was supposed to be therapeutic but it does not help. Take Care

Janet Dear Dianne and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers every day. Take care. From Janet

Dianne Thx Claire. This weekend was quite tough with all the reminders. Yesterday Callum and Roxy came to visit us and it was good to see them again.

March 25, 2008 at 10:34am

Dianne Here's wishing you all a safe long weekend.
If you are driving remember to:
THINK BIKE!!!!!!!!!!!
and that:
Dont drink & drive, speed or drive wrecklessly
In South Africa you have more chance of dying on our roads than of HIV or crime, BUT road fatalaties are not a crises like crime and HIV coz it is referred to as an "Accident".

I have decided not to carry on with updating this page from Facebook. I have put that in the past and cannot go back and read all the comments. People have moved on.
