I have so many memories of happy days biking with Kat and "The Biker Chiks". Kat was always keen to venture wherever regardless of weather or routes! I also have recollections of our times in Nicaragua..just relaxing and enjoying the culture and the people of a lovely country. You will be missed dear friend..

So many amazing memories and life lessons.
My mother was loving, caring, very intelligent and beautiful inside and out.
She had this connection with the people who were close to her, it was almost as if she could sense when something was wrong. We often would come across the topic of telekinesis, the after life and re-incarnation. She believed that life did not end at death, so I hope wherever she is and whatever she has become makes her happy.
I have a memory I would like to share, tough to pick just one but it relates to the paragraph above.
I had recently started to work as a fishing guide on North Vancouver Island. It was a dream job for myself as I had a passion for fishing, passed down from my mother and father at a young age.
After a month of guiding and learning the ropes of the Hospitality fishing industry I had one of the absolutely worst days of my adult working career. I was about to call it quits, pack my bags and head back home to start anew when the phone rang.... Guess who ??
After a lengthy conversation about who I was (the son of a great fisherman) and what I was capable of doing (just about anything in her eyes) we said I love and goodbye.
That reassurance, at the impeccable moment was exactly what I needed to continue on that summer. I will never forget it. Thanks Mom ❤️
