In case you didn’t know our beautiful aislinn passed away peacefully at 11.25 am Perth time on Tuesday the 6th of October.
We had a short, succient, service on Thursday with a Buddhist monk who Ais had meditated with and some simple short speeches then we released some doves. There was a lot of emotion in the room but the monk calmed everyone down and made all feel at ease. I know a lot of people would have liked to have been there but Aislinn really wanted Ajahn Brahm presided over the event leaving less than 48 hours to finalise the funeral arrangements. We know that those that couldn’t make will all be thinking of Aislinn where ever they are and hopefully getting support from those around them.
As you might know. a group of us had organised a event named “Fundraislinn” for Aislinn on the night of her passing in Melbourne. This event went ahead and people were told on the night as you could imagine there was a lot of tears but people were at least together in the same room when told and had each other to hold onto. It is times like this when we need some of Aislinns strength. The event ended up raising close to $30,000 and is testament to the amazing people that were drawn to her character and wanted to help ease a little of her burden. Funds raised will be used to pay off some medical/funeral expenses, find a way to best utilise the research that Aislinn had made into cancer treatments and towards the Cancer Support Network of WA.
Please keep checking this blog as we will be discussing Aislinns legacy and how we can use her research and funds that have been raised.
With Love, Matt
