Melissa Little lost her entire family just two months ago after her husband Damien Little shot himself and his sons, Koda, four, and Hunter, 10 months, before driving off the Port Lincoln wharf. She has now posted a moving message online, thanking those who offered her support.
She shared the message on Facebook saying the support she had received had been outstanding and she was overwhelmed by people’s generosity.
“It is positivity that helps make each day for me more bearable,” she wrote.
“I can’t thank everyone enough for the financial contributions … words cannot express how thankful I am and the feeling of gratitude I hold within.”
“For those who knew Damien, Koda and Hunter personally, continue to cherish the memories of their happy times and happy faces.
“And for those who did not know them personally please understand how I wish my family to be remembered, the happy fun loving times.”
“Hug your loved ones tight. Tell them how much you love them and never let them go,” she said.
For support and information about suicide prevention, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
Our thoughts are always with Melissa. Such a tragedy.
