A wonderful bequest

This week we received a very generous bequest of $10,000 from Teresa Bocking who sadly passed away last year.

Teresa and her husband Brad have been Friends of the Bush supporters since 2005 and Brad continues to support us.

Here's an excerpt from an email I received from Brad:

Teresa passed away in July last year from pancreatic cancer.  I honestly can't believe 12 months have gone since.  The past 12 months have been a challenging time for me and my 2 sons (16 & 18 years of age) but we are slowly making the adjustments to our lives to carry on.  I'm sure everyone says this about their deceased loved ones, but Teresa was a rare individual in that she tried to live by her principles every day and in a very practical manner.  She was truly passionate about "big picture" environmental issues but worked at a local practical level to make a contribution to environmental causes (tree planting, weed control, wetland restoration, etc).
