A tragically early death occured yesterday within the family. It's been a painful and heartbreaking time for Sam, Chris and their family, as they suffered with Trent through his battle against melanoma.

Some are bound to die young
By dying young a person stays young in people's memory.
If he burns brightly before he dies, his brightness shines for all time.

If you notice any change to shape or colour of moles, see a doctor immediately. Australia has the worlds highest incidence rate for melanoma. You can read more here.

Rest in peace, Trent.
