Much love sent to Aunty Tami, Jade, Sarah, Casey and your families. I fondly remember my 16th Birthday, your dad let me use his car for my driver’s test in snowy, cold winter. I passed. Our indigenous side grieves for the entire first year, as all the “firsts” come to pass- his birthday, holidays, Father’s Day, etc. Tears are not a weakness but strength, as you release the pain of loss.
