Saturday night we drove to Canuck Place to attend a memorial for all their lost children. This was the palliative care home where Jack lived his last 11 hrs and 40 min off dialysis.I cried through most of it as did everyone else. There were I think at least 30 families that had lost their children in the last 2 yrs. 30 families that walked up and lit 30 candles. We paused after your candle was lit Jack and watched it flicker. We then went back to our seats and listen to beautiful songs and speeches made by those that work in the home. They talked of the love we all had in our hearts.
Afterword we went to the gardens, it was evening by this time and the garden was lit with lanterns that had the names of of all the lost children. It was heartbreaking and beautiful. We retrieved your lantern and walked through the garden with the light of your lantern lighting our path.
I wish I could feel that light everyday, I wish I could feel you with me.
My everything. Jack and Mummy forever
