To all the amazing, loving, caring, beautiful people that have kindly donated to this page
We have been truly overwhelmed by all the love, support and generosity over this sad time, it was such a shock for our wee family with the tragic loss of our beautiful son and brother, Rhys, while he was overseas. We feel so lucky that we were able to bring him back home to Hahei New Zealand, where he can stay now. It was truly the only place he ever wanted to live.
It’s been very humbling for us to receive such amazing support from so many people, we love you all and would like to thank everyone personally but cannot at the moment.
Please accept our heartfelt thanks
Love you all
Wendy Russ Josh & Ryan Cochrane / Helms
Rhys's family have been blown away and humbled by the overwhelming generosity and support from everyone. They want to give a huge heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped them during this rough time with their overwhelming support and love. Rhys has an amazing group of friends and they thank you all.
Rhys's body was found a few hours ago.
We don't have many details and are waiting to hear from his family.
Thank you all for the generous support, it's been phenomenal to see.
At this point this page will stay live, with all funds being available to Rhys's family to cover whatever costs may still come up.
We will post another update as we find out more.
