After consultation and with the gratitude and blessing of the Nairn family an initiative is being encouraged for all New Zealanders to take part in at 4pm today, 17 November 2022.
The invitation is to simply take a “time out” from whatever you are doing at 4pm today, to connect, catch up or call a family member or friend to simply say “I love you.”
For the Nairn family, there was no tomorrow. So we are encouraging everyone to share the healing power of love to bring families back together, to talk openly about Rory and others who we know have passed and to seize this emotional anniversary as a day to reconnect with loved ones just in case there is no tomorrow.
This poster below was designed by Sarah, Rory’s sister, and family friend Tracey added the touching words that encapsulate the invitation to share love
Rory would be so bloody proud of you Ashleigh & Sarah
Not only have you lost your love Ashleigh & brother Sarah … you have had to grieve meanwhile attracting media attention, having to defend your truth, endure a court case, deal with many unfounded judgements & start again in every way possible with out your fiancé’ Ashleigh.
You are both truly inspirations & although it might not feel it some days, you are incredibly strong!!
I listened to you speak @ the Mandate protest in February, Ashleigh, though your grief was raw… you were a tower of strength.
Go easy today beautiful ladies
While the Country moves on … I’ll be thinking of you always
