The Next Place The next place that I go will be as peaceful and familiar as a sleepy summer Sunday and a sweet, untroubled mind. And yet, it won’t be anything like any place I’ve ever been… or seen… or even dreamed of in the place I leave behind. I won’t know where I’m going, and I won’t know where I’ve been as I tumble through the always and look back toward the when. I’ll glide beyond the rainbows. I’ll drift above the sky. I’ll fly into the wonder, without ever wondering why. I won’t remember getting there, somehow I’ll just arrive. There will be no room for darkness in the place of living light, where the ever-dawning morning pushes back the dying night. The very air will fill with brilliance, as the brightly shining sun and the moon and half a million stars are married into one. I will not be a boy or girl, a woman or a man, I’ll simply be just simply me. No worse or better than. I will finally be perfect. I will be without a flaw. I will never make one more mistake, or break the smallest law. I will travel empty-handed. There is not a single thing I‘ve collected that I would ever want to bring EXCEPT…… The love of those who loved me, the warmth of those who cared, the happiness and memories and magic that we shared. Though I will know the joy of solitude… I’ll never be alone I’ll be embraced by all the family and friends I’ve ever known. Although I might not see their faces, all our hearts will beat as one, and the circle of our spirits will shine brighter than the sun. I will cherish all the friendship I was fortunate to find, all the love and all the laughter in the place I leave behind. All these good things will go with me. They will make my spirit glow. And my light will shine forever in the next place that I go. The Next Place Author Warren Hanson

On behalf of Kim, my brother and sisters, I want to thank our family and friends for your support through my fathers illness. We are blessed to receive your kindness, love and well wishes. The past few months have been a long difficult journey filled with some truly joyful moments and tears. I've thought about what to say for a long time and find It easiest to share the things dad left with me.

Dad lived his life in a way that said, lighten up, don't push too hard and live for the simple things because those mattered more then riches and success.

Things I learned from dad as a kid

- Make your child believe they are the best at their sport. Dee and I were the queens of softball, Jay was lightning fast on the football field and Katy was his special Gold medal athlete

- Christmas was dad's favourite day of the year

- Through observing dad, I could deliver a swear word like it was poetry

- With dad a bag of peanut M&Ms could solve any problem

- Listening to music with dad was a time to be free, to sing, to dance and jam out on the air guitar


Things I learned from dad as a teenager

- It doesn't matter how much you want to sleep in, Christmas morning starts at 6:30am

- Loosing sleep because we watched some freaky scary movies with dad was awesome

- Always have a cautious eye, never start a fight but finish one if you have too. This advice came in handy a few times on the junior high school yard.

- Dad loves his music loud and he wants to share an excellent tune with his friends and family


Things I learned from dad as an adult

- An ice cold beer could solve many problems, if not, have another you'll sure feel better

- Even though I'm a grown adult, with my own children, I'm still getting a 6:30am wake up call on Christmas morning telling me to get my butt out of bed and get over his house for Christmas

- Working hard to bring home a pay check and to provide for my family was my #1 responsibility

- Music is a universal language that can take you to another place and time and evoke every emotion

The most important thing my dad left with me is a true understanding that this life can be beautiful, it can be confusing and get messy.

But loving your loved ones and all of their perfect imperfections is what life is all about.
I'm certain he truly loved Kim and all of his children and for this I am forever grateful.

Rest in peace dad, goodby for now but not forever. Victoria

Knew he was handsome but hadn't kept up with how prolific. My very deepest sympathies to Kim and his family for the loss of a great guy.

A special dad is hard to find, you dad I am keeping in my mind, I wished you could have stayed forever, but I will never forget you oh not ever.
Distance is one thing that keeps us apart, but Dad you will always remain in my heart.
A special smile, a special face, a special someone I cant replace.
I love you Dad, Deanna
