How would you describe them?

“Theo Lucas Kingsley Monk is a very special little boy who lit up our lives for just over 6 short years, but stays in our hearts for ever.”

What did they love most?

“Theo loved music, spinning things and yoghurt! Mr Tumble was the best thing ever and made him laugh every time he saw him!”

What will you remember most about them?

“I loved everything about Theo from the touch of his silky auburn hair to the wet cheek pressed next to mine. Life is an empty space without him.”

Welcome to the Gift of Hope Heart Fund which has been set up in memory of  a very special little boy, THEO LUCAS KINGSLEY MONK.  Theo had a host of special needs, including a visual impairment, physical difficulties, autism and profound developmental delay.  He grew from a tiny scrap, who struggled to feed, to a seemingly healthy boy who loved life and engaged all with his beautiful smile and gentle demeanour.  Following his tragic and untimely death at 6 years old in September 2008 we found out that he had an undetected heart defect.  We set up the Gift of Hope Fund in the belief that this was the reason for his death.  However, we have subsequently found out that this was not the reason for his death. It is still a mystery as to why he aspirated that night.  He was taken from us so suddenly and cruelly.  He is missed by all who knew him.  Life is just not the same without him.  Although we have no answers for why we lost Theo, our wish for no family to lose a child for whatever reason remains.  This fund has been set up to raise money for the British Heart Foundation to help them research congenital heart conditions. More information about Theo can be found on his website: Thank you.

18th September 2012

We visited Sun Rising a usual and felt at peace. We then went onto the NMA to see your tree, growing so tall. There are lots of copper leaves on the Edward's Trust bronze memorial tree and they make a lovely tickling sound. You would have loved them! Still missing you so much. Nothing makes it better but knowing friends care helps to make it more bearable. You are loved and missed by so many people who knew the beautiful boy you always will be.
