Remembering Ian on his birthday

On October 12, 2015 our son Ian would have been 12. We can never fully capture the unbounded love he felt for everyone he knew, the compassion he felt for those he knew and didn’t know; the clever ways he observed and expressed himself in the world- nor the ways we know he still shows compassion and concern. No matter what memorial events we have, the least we can do is strive to love despite the deep gap etched in our hearts. From the time he could speak, he was concerned that we lookout for those among us who are often overlooked, (including our animal friends) and that no one felt unloved. Here’s to you, Ian, for being you and all you’ve taught us.🌹image
