Hi everyone, I am back in the Hunters Bay Studio with my friend
Sue Higgs. Sue and I have had a great conversation that went by too quickly about her amazing and incredible journey with her father
Homer, and that story also became the first chapter of my book.
It was entitled “It Was a Good Death”. Homer lived an incredible death didn’t he? “Yes he did”. Can you just tell us a little bit about Homer
so everyone knows they have to listen to this story.
He was a wonderful man who was totally blinded from an industrial accident at the age of 18, and went on to have a very full and rich life
with 5 children. He participated in many sports, he golfed, he bowled,
he was part of the Paralympics, was very rarely un-employed and did a
lot of jobs that were menial but supported our family and in his passing, created a wonderful legacy for us and helped us along on our journey.
He was the one that made it so much easier for all of us.
He lived his life fully, he lived well and he died well? “Absolutely”.
I shared with Sue that hearing Homer’s story changed my life and
put me on this trajectory of sharing incredible stories because I bring Homer wherever I go (there he is –with Maverick his guide dog)
I encourage you to read about it in my book “It Was a Good Death”,
listen to the show and if there is anyone that you know that is
struggling with what they are going through, challenges, ability,
disability whatever they may be going through, they can listen to
the story of Homer because it gives you hope and it is inspiring!
I am delighted to honour Homer and thank you Sue for sharing
your dad with me (and the world!) Tune in, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks! Bye for Now!
