Denise and Bruce Morcombes' courage, faith beyond compare

LETTER OF THE DAY: As tragic as this case is there are positives that need to be acknowledged in the matter of Daniel Morcombe.

First and foremost, you could not, even through an election, find two people as dedicated and stoic as Denise and Bruce Morcombe.

They have remained together, fought for their cause and are ambassadors for their cause. Their persistence and faith that they would find answers is beyond compare.

Secondly, it would appear this case has brought out the best of the police force. No one has suggested the police acted improperly and it would appear through the Morcombes relentless want for answers that the police have achieved this.

Finally, the Morcombes know their son is dead. They have some bones to bury. Many people lose their loved ones without knowing. Even with convictions, some perpetrators don't give up their secrets.

The Morcombes have some closure and certainty and hopefully are able, after this trial, to move on.
