Today, nine long years after he was abducted from a bus stop and murdered on his way to do some Christmas shopping, Daniel Morcombe was finally laid to rest.
Finally his parents and family know he is back where he belongs.
His parents Bruce and Denise, never gave up,
kept his name in the public eye
and never let us forget they were searching for their son.
His kidnap never became a " cold case".
Every year they held rallies and marches commemorating their son and pushing their child safety message.
They've been so brave but Denise has a haunted look and the saddest eyes.
In his eulogy today Bruce Morcombe said:
"He may no longer with us but Daniel's legacy lives on. The Daniel Morcombe Foundation is committed to doing all we can to ensure this never happens again by educating children on ways to keep safe and supporting young victims of crime."
The family are taking comfort from knowing their son and brother would now, finally, rest in peace.
