alex’s memory lives on

Today was a very special occasion for the Webb family of Monbulk.

Last year Leo and Karen lost their twelve year old son Alex in a tragic accident at the local BMX track. In Alex’s memory family and friends celebrated his thirteenth birthday today at Baynes Park Reserve in Monbulk.

Alex was a talented soccer player and Baynes Park was Alex’s favourite reserve. In honour of his memory the family were keen to have a seat and a small garden put in place at Baynes Park. I was humbled to work with the family to see their vision realised and to be part of their celebration of Alex today.

Over one hundred family and friends of Alex Webb gathered at Baynes Park to remember him. Balloons with birthday wishes and goodwill messages were released.

The garden and seat provide a place of contemplation and is an enduring reminder of Alex in a beautiful setting.
