‘This weekend we lost the fight for my daughter’s life against depression, trauma, PTSD, and drug addiction that we have been fighting since we got her back from America through emergency repatriation DFAT but broken.

‘She fought hard against her demons as we all did a side by side next to her, and picked up the broken pieces over and over again but she could not fight anymore and we lost her.

As her dad, I am proud of her beyond words as she is my hero, my daughter, and my best friend that I love so so much. She is no longer hurting now with the universe wanting their angel back.

A big part of me is lost at the moment but I ask respectfully that my close friends try not to ring me until I get some way through this.

 Always in my heart. I love my Winnie.’
