This is from an old family friend in Prince George. Loralyn and I also went to University together. Our hearts are joined together in grief this year.
Thanks for sharing Murdoch.
It is with a mixture of emotions that I write you today. I am happy that your beautiful mom is now laughing and hanging out with my beautiful sister. They can both agree that cancer sucks!! But both were such amazing women that they will find positives and I’m sure be looking over us proud of the influences they’ve had. My dad will also be driving them in his Polaris too. Wind in their hair and smiles on their faces.
Nobody can take away your journey, your pain or the amazing memories you have to share with your boys. May your mom rest in peace and you enjoy the rest of the holidays with family and loved ones.
From my family to yours please share hugs, laughs and smiles. Xoxo

The lights streams in down the lake as I sit at my parents kitchen table.
Dad eats his lunch and adds to our dialogue.
Jamie sits and writes my mom’s eulogy.
Auntie Gail is on the phone to fill in the gaps. Thank God for her great memory.
JC and CC practice memorizing their poem.
Marnie keeps the copious amounts of beautiful flowers and food organized.
Sexy Neck is gathering and testing AV equipment. He is so talented and a pillar of faith.
Me, I walk around in disbelief.
I gather photos and memorabilia that represent my mom and her life.
I add what I can, as I love having this time to talk about my beautiful mom.
I am privileged to be walking this journey with such selfless, thoughtful, caring, loving people.
My prayer is that tomorrow God’s love, peace and light will shine on us tomorrow. I pray that my mama would be proud.
See you tomorrow in person and in spirit.
And no I am not going to sing!!
Trying to understand the behaviour of some people is like trying to smell the colour nine.
