It was eight months on Thursday Dylan; two thirds of a year, 240 days now since you left us. I wish I could write that things are easier now and in some ways, I suppose they are but there are days when I still struggle; you are never far from my thoughts. I’m really t...

8 months today. Life goes on. This sun still sets, the moon still rises, people continue on with their busy lives chasing the North American Dream and I'm still stuck with the processing of these events and the pressure on my shoulders of pursuing the path that I'm mea...

Dear Dylan,

 

It’s December 15th – only 10 days until Christmas and in years past I would be busy baking holiday treats, buying gifts and looking forward to spending precious time together. Instead, I’m avoiding the mall, turning off Christmas carols when they come...

Dylan, 

 

It's been 6 months since that moment I was awoken by shrieks of pain coming from moms room, that moment when Grampy told me over the phone that you had passed, the moment that changed my path and life indefinitely.

Today is the 4-month anniversary of Dylan’s passing and I am writing this on a plane flying back to Kelowna from a 4-day visit to Toronto. The purpose of my visit was to help my folks with a trade-show booth at the Canadian Health Retailers yearly trade show held at t...

It’s been three months now that you’ve been gone Dylan and not a one of us are anywhere nearer to reconciling the fact that you’re gone than we were the moment we first found out. Whenever I stop for a moment to think about you, a lump immediately forms in my throat a...

Today marks 8 weeks since my son Dylan’s death and there are a few things I’ve come to realize. Much like after a fire ravages a forest, in time, healing and life finds a way to begin again and new and beautiful things begin to grow. So too have I begun to discover new...

June 12, 2014

It's been four weeks today since we received the early morning phone call that told us that my son Dylan had passed away. I remember every moment of that awful morning, the nausea, the explosion of pain in my head and stomach, the disbelief, the tears that couldn't sto...
