This week we will mark the 4 month anniversary of Lynn’s murder. On one hand it seems as if the last 4 months have gone in slow motion and it feels more like 4 years since our family received the tragic news……4 months ago the course of our lives were forever changed….nothing can prepare you for the loss, the sorrow, the pain or the confusion that comes along with losing someone in this manner. Nothing can prepare you for the emotional and physical hurricane that becomes your existence from that moment forward. Sometimes it feels that all is lost and there is little hope.
On the other hand, over the last 4 months I have seen an overwhelming pouring out of support, commitment and affirmation from individuals and organizations across Canada, but specifically within the province of BC. These include complete strangers, organizations that support women, organization that speak up against abuse of women and educational institutions. We have connected with several families that also have tragic stories of their own, we can mutually share a common understanding and heartfelt compassion for what we are each going through. We have shared our story and emotions with the media, and the media has treated our family with respect and compassion while relaying our cause. I am thankful to all who have listened, supported and carried my family through the last 4 months.
As we approach the holiday season I want to remind everyone to spent time with your loved ones. Our time on this earth is limited and while we continue to fight for Lynn’s Law and some sort of justice, honor Lynn’s memory by loving others around you and know that there is still good in this world . Lynn believed that and so do I.
