Ryder Jack Manulat 2011 - 2014: funeral service and memorial foundation

Many readers will have seen the very sad news of the sudden, unexpected death of two year old Ryder Manulat, from meninococcal disease, last week.  Ryder's family has been actively involved in the DS Hunter Region during his short life. Now DS Hunter region members are supporting Merran, Ray and their family in their loss, and are invited to attend his funeral, to be held this Friday:
11am, Friday 20th June 2014
Nelson Bay Baptist Church
19 Government Road, Nelson Bay 
Candy Connors, Liaison and Support for the DS Hunter Region community, has asked us to pass on this information for anyone who is interested:
Many people have emailed me with their condolences for the family and I will ensure that each of them is collated in a booklet for the family. If you would like to add your own thoughts to that please simply email them to me at dshr@dsansw.org.au 
On behalf of Merran and Ray, DS Hunter Region is in the process of setting up a foundation to honour Ryder's memory and to support children with Down syndrome 0 - 5 yrs and their families here in the Hunter. That will take a little time, so for now Down Syndrome NSW is assisting by accepting donations named 'In Memory of Ryder Manulat' until the foundation is established and able accept donation directly.
