From families

At FFMPU we work alongside families who live with the loss of a missing loved one. We are aware of the many efforts they make that are an indication of their hopefulness, strength and love for their missing person. Much of what they do honours their loved one.

Sometimes we are privileged to share a part of their experience with them. They keep in contact with the team, they continue to go to work, they look after their children, grandchildren and other family members. They write, paint, garden, cook, sew, knit, quilt and play sport. They speak at public events and write to members of parliament. Sometimes they might even take a break from all of life’s demands for a moment or longer.

This page provides an opportunity for family members and friends to share something of themselves. If you would like to do the same, please talk to one of the team.
