Suddenly conversations are missing, the sound of someone else's voice and activities in the house. It is a major aspect of the sudden and inexplicable emptiness a loved one leaves when they have gone.
This day is also the 10th anniversary of Andrew's disappearance and to mark this day I have decided to carry out a sponsored silence to reflect the impact of a decade without our son. On 14th September I shall not utter a word for 10 hours; an hour for each year. How the first days became weeks, months and now years is difficult to comprehend for us as a family.
It is in this 10th year that you may have seen Andrew's face on Missing People's Find Every Child campaign posters.
