On the anniversary of his death, Friday 22 August, please join me in remembering Nico and all the happiness, love and laughter he brought into the world.
We laid him in a box with blue skies and sunflowers and filled our house and the church with huge bouquets of sunflowers. Friends of ours and of Nico’s brought us more sunflowers, real, painted and ceramic and we keep them in pride of place.
On 22 August I will be changing my profile picture on Twitter to a sunflower for one day. Will you change your Twitter profile to a sunflower too in memory of Nico and all the precious and loved young people who have died needless deaths, deaths by indifference, by neglect, by poor practice and by ignorance? We remember you all and always. On this day I want to fill the world with sunflowers– for Nico, for everyone, for all of us.
