The SANDS Memorial is set in a cliff top enclosure with extensive views across the Ahuriri Lagoon. It is a contemplative retreat dedicated to children who have died in infancy.
This memorial was dedicated on 1 May 1999 in memory of those babies taken before their lives were lived.
May they never be forgotten and live in our hearts forever.
I thought of you today but that was nothing new. I thought of you yesterday and the day before that too. For it doesn't take a special day to bring you to my mind. 'Cause a day without a thought of you is very hard to find.
