In Loving Memory



A phone call at 3:30 in the morning never brings good news. My nephew, Brett, passed away early this morning. He died from injuries he suffered in a 4-wheeler accident after leaving a party celebrating his 22nd birthday with his friends. His grandfather on his father's side died a few short weeks ago. My sister is comforted knowing he is now in a better place with him.

Some days, the whole "better place" argument is all that keeps you goin.

This is no doubt one of those days.

So sorry.

Gary,

I'm sorry to learn about your nephew. Having only met my own biological family a few years ago I've had the chance to experience a nephew who was five when we met and bonded, and who turned 12 this month. I will be with him in Montreal this next week. I can feel the pain you're experiencing.

When I logged into your site tonight and saw Brett's photo, I was taken back by how much you and he look so much alike. Again, my condolences Gary.

Gary,

My prayers are with you and your family during this time. God controls life and death for each of us. He is the Divine Creator and we are His Divine Creatures.
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

Keep the faith and you will see your loved ones again on the other side of this veil we call life.

You have my deepest sympathy.

Thanks again to everyone for your support. The more I learn about his accident the more painful it is to accept. We all make bad decisions from time to time, but you never know in advance which one will end your life prematurely.
