On Wednesday, one of the amazing homeless men we join each night for a catch-up and a meal died.

There is no easy way to say it and my heart is saddened at the thought of just how many people die on our streets and no one even notices.

Eddie was a guarded angry man when we first met him or maybe he was just cautious then we saw the real Eddie. He had even stopped drinking.

On Monday night I was talking to him and he was so thankful that we and people like us take the time to care.

That was the last time I saw Eddie.

As the weather gets colder please spare a thought for our homeless and think, is there a way you can help.

Volunteering at the Victory Care Shed on Barter St is a wonderful start as they are our support.

Jada Burns,

Gympie
