In the Wake of the Largest Natural Disaster in Living Memory
How eerie and timely our Christmas message appeal was, calling on us all to support Red Cross and other disaster agencies who work around the world. Our story of a storm at sea washing up millions of starfish will probably seem contrived to readers reading it now for the first time, but we actually published it on Michael's Memorial Site one day before the disaster actually struck. We now appeal again for all of Michael's fans to show their generosity and give freely to help those in desperate need in the Indian Ocean rim. Michael loved the Asian Pacific region and often holiday there.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to all those tens of thousands of people who have been affected.
Christmas Greetings 2004

Kelland Hutchence
You lived each day as an adventure. Your mind never stopped ticking over as to what you could achieve next. You loved life with a passion and you were always generous with your time to those you gave strength to along the way. You never lost your dignity, your heart of love or your hope in the future. You were a gentleman, an intellectual, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother, a friend. Your smile was kind, warm and genuine. You will always be joyfully celebrated and sadly missed. Happy birthday Kell.
