The feelings were very mixed while making Adrianís Quilt. Initially frustrating, trying to get some inspiration for ideas that were meaningful. Then exciting as friends joined in and contributed their ideas and designs. This then led to a creative sort of calm as it all came together.
We laughed and talked about Adrian and to Adrian and were sure he was laughing back at us and with us!
Finally seeing the panel unveiled and displayed was very emotional and healing - seeing something creative and tangible and knowing it was certainly a really worthwhile project in many, many ways!
Adrian always seemed a very special person, even when he was very young. He could talk and charm people of all ages and was really quite irrepressible and mischievious. He could make people laugh so easily and often. His talents were many, from dancing to creating lovely clothes - which became his career. He loved people and travelling - which he did a lot of. He was very sensitive and caring about people and their feelings and could be very wise and serious as well as humourous.
He certainly enriched our lives and still is by the many happy memories and lovely friends we know because of Adrian. Yes, you were very special!
Love, Mum and Dad
There is another panel for Adrian, on Block 1.
