Coroners verdict was accidental death. I feel this was the right decision. So many things to say, but I’m not going to say them. I feel so sorry to the boy who was driving the tractor, just 21, and to have that accident hanging over him, he looked so young and afraid, and genuinely sorry for what had happened. I was allowed to ask questions, which I found very gratifying, but I didn’t ask him anything… Because I didn’t want to break him. I asked questions of other witnesses and experts, but I didn’t think asking him pertinent questions would have helped me or my beautiful Marie, but would have just made his position worse. Marie and I believed in love, and the power of love, so I tried to give him our love, and allow him away out of his nightmare.
So that’s it. I have done my best to give my Marie all my love as she moves on into the next adventure. I hope she waits for me, I don’t think I will be long, she tells me time is different in the great beyond. The truth is, with the inquest over, I feel I am now free. I can move on. Obviously, I move on with her with me… She has given me so much love over the years, and made me a better person.
Thanks to everyone who has offered me so much love and support over the last ten months, I don’t think I would have been able to carry on without all that love I felt coming from everyone.
