‘My family visited Maya’s Rest for an afternoon at the invitation of Tash and Mark, after we donated a tree in our late daughter’s name. Our daughter passed away in July 2015 at the age of 2yrs and 2 months.

Visiting Maya’s Rest, even for that short time, allowed us some moments to breathe, take in the view and reflect on our little girl. Our two surviving children had a wonderful time and made a new friend in Tash and Mark’s daughter, Amelia. 

I was fortunate to be able to chat to Mark and Tash about their own loss and how they have created this wonderful service to honour Maya. It was wonderful to be able to talk openly and honestly with someone why truly understood how I felt. I was allowed to smile as I reminisced about my daughter and also allowed to shed tears without feeling like I was making anyone uncomfortable.’
