little jumper. The day after we lost George, Paul and I explained to our children 

that George now sparkled in the stars and at night we could see him before bed. 

This is also where Daddy is now.

Our Aims:

2 Wish Upon A Star and this website have not only been set up to remember Paul 

and George but also to make a difference in their memory.

The aims of 2 Wish Upon a Star are to raise funds to improve bereavement 

services in Wales. Emphasis will be on bereavement support for parents after 

losing their child suddenly and traumatically. The funds will be raised with the 

support of local companies and projects but mainly through fundraising."

I can remember another bereavement support oganization located in Dayton, 

Virginia where I grew up. The Sadie Rose Foundation. I sure either or both would

accept your donations with extreme gratitude.
