一封漂洋过海的家书

Phillip my son, it has been 18 long months since you have gone, I
count the months, weeks and days that your beautiful soul left us.

Your family miss you each and every day, our grief will never leave.

As I write this letter my tears fall like rain, as they do each and
every day, your mother and I walk around in shock and denial,
this is now normal for us. Our love for you is eternal.

Your death has left us with a wound that will never heal.

Your mother regularly recalls how she would listen to you
practising your guitar when you were in your bedroom, the
gentle strumming and songs you would play were very soothing
and relaxing to her. This is something she missed when you were
teaching English in China and will miss forever.

Phillip, I know how much you loved and enjoyed playing your guitars.

Your electric and acoustic guitars have pride of place in your
bedroom>Phil, I always feel your presence around me, even
though you are not there, I hear you talk to me, sometimes
guide me, even though you are not there, you visit me often in
my dreams when I sleep and talk to me, just as I always visit you
in a garden that is now your home.

Mum and I miss the cheeky smile you always had and your quirky
sense of humour, no longer can we kiss you or feel your warmth
as we used to hold you in our arms.

As I walk around the home that you grew up in, I look lovingly at
all of the pictures we have of you, our constant reminder of our
beautiful son and brother, gone at such a young age.

Phil, I carry this poem about you with me day and night.

Phillip, at You truly had a heart of gold.

I know I’ll have to wait a while.

Until I see your beautiful smile.

Phillip, part of you still lives on in the 5 organ recipients that have
received the most precious gifts you could ever give. You will never ever
be gone from our memories, or the memories of the people you have
given new life and hope to.

The 5 organ recipients are members of our family now, and I
know that they love you and want to celebrate your life almost
as much as we do, they have formed a wonderful musical group
called “One Man’s Band” in your honour and as a tribute to
you, your generosity and your love of music and playing the guitar.

We feel assured that this band will be very happy and find as
much joy and pleasure in playing and performing music as you always did.

Our family sincerely hope that the One Man’s Band members,
will all live a long, healthy and happy life.

Phillip, all of our love to you my Prince, from Mum, Dad, your
brother Mitchell and sister Miranda.

▲菲利普一家唯一的全家福(一排居中为菲利普)

当得知接受儿子捐献器官挽救的5位移植受者为了完成菲利普的音乐梦想组成了“一个人的乐队”,彼得先生按捺不住自已激动的心情,连夜写了一封家书。

这封饱含思念、充满深情的电子邮件,通过重庆市红十字会工作人员,飘洋过海传递到了中国。如今,菲利普已经离开大家17个月了,彼得夫妇俩每天都会去整理儿子的房间,所有的摆设仍保留着原来的样子。房间的墙上挂着菲利普生前的照片和一幅中国画,床头摆着一个来自重庆市红十字会的“红心侠”小公仔,窗台上安静地摆放着他生前弹奏过的几把吉他,还有一位中国画家画的菲利普的肖像。父亲彼得的手机里仍然保存着菲利普生前的所有照片和视频文件,每当翻看儿子照片以及演奏的视频就成了一家人最快乐的时光。

2019全国人体器官捐献缅怀纪念暨宣传普及活动中,我们请到菲利普的父母,跨越国界,跨越千里,菲利普的父母看到了长眠于此的儿子,彼得亲吻照片中的儿子,这一吻,痛彻心扉。

为了让儿子永远陪伴在自己身边,父亲彼得把儿子的爱深深地埋在心里,把菲利普的名字和肖像刻在了自己的双臂上,甚至把儿子最喜欢的吉它在一起刻上了。

今年的圣诞节,大家没有忘记这个阳光帅气的大小伙子,福寿园的志愿者们结伴来到重庆人体器官捐献纪念园内为菲利普特别设立的纪念碑前,为他献上鲜花,感恩他如圣诞老人般的慷慨馈赠。“一个人的乐队”的成员们也都通过红十字会将感激和祝福送到了遥远的大洋彼岸。

重庆市红十字会的工作人员将纪念园内一年四季花草繁茂,绿树成荫的照片传送给了菲利普的父亲,老人激动不已,他在回复里这样说:

Thank you.

The respect and dignity you are showing to our beautiful son is appreciated
by his family and friends.

It is very comforting to us knowing that this site is so well maintained and
cared for.

I hope to one day visit this monument again at some time in the future.

I don't know if you celebrate Christmas there, today is our Christmas day in
Australia, so let my family wish you and your family a very merry Christmas.
Please pass this Christmas message message.

世界上,

有一种爱,可以跨越国界

有一种情,可以超越种族

纵使千山万水,也会义无反顾

器官捐献,生命延续

这是一种人间大爱

永远闪耀着人道主义的光辉

“一个人的乐队”温暖出发,我们期待得到大家的支持
