My guest today, coming to us from beautiful Forster on the NSW coast, is Deb Carr, whose stories of communication from her late brother, Gary, appear throughout my book Love Never Dies. Deb, a single mother of two who publishes the popular Sydney Chic blog, grew up in New Zealand with her three brothers. A shadow fell across their world when Gary was 10, as Deb is about to share with us. What happened to the little boy plunged him into depression and led, eventually, to his decision to take his own life at the age of 34 in 1998. Deb was inconsolable and it was only her experience of hearing from him a few days later that stopped Deb from succumbing to despair. Please note that this episode references sexual abuse and suicide.
