    Hello Bill and family,

    Margaret and I were so sad to hear the news of David. It seems like so many years ago now Bill that we last saw each other here in Vancouver, and I remember fondly our kids playing with each other and having so much fun together. A nice memory.

    My heart aches for you Bill…our deepest sympathies to you all. Dave

    Diane Megg and family. There are no words to express how sorry I am for all of you.
    Although I only met David a few times he left a lasting impression. Although David is no longer here he will always be in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Again I am so sorry for your loss and pray David is now at peace. Love Vanda xx

    To Diane, Megg, Bill, Karen, Kaitlin and Chris:
    I love you all and I was so deeply moved by the incredible strength and bravery that I witnessed these past few days as you all try to navigate your way through this sudden and tragic loss of our David. I will love and miss him right along with you for the rest of my life. As I return home to Victoria, I wanted to let share with you some words that a friend sent to me, although I paraphrase here and there!

    ~ The old saying that life goes on has never been so real as it is today and as I return home to Victoria. The same sun is shining on the ocean.. The Sky is blue as it ever was. The Source is still outpouring its energy and Love and intelligence into each one of us. The same vast possibilities exist for all who would express more of themselves.
    Life goes on after the sudden passing of our cherished David, yet it goes on in a deeper, richer way. It is as if our David has dispersed himself all over us, like fine gold dust, or morning mist on a field.
    His influence is feeding us and enlivening the best in us. He has become integrated into our wisdom, our love and our vision for our World. However much we long for it, we cannot have his physical presence. But we have him where it really counts. We have him in our hearts forever.

    Human beings are both incredibly strong and tenderly fragile. Both of these qualities are playing in me today. I know that all is well in the great scheme of things. At the same time, there is a deep well of sadness that is not in contradiction to that knowing.
    We walk on a narrow path of the Absolute and the Relative, the Spiritual and the Human. The one informs the other. My Grief is stabilized by my Spirit.

    I know that life goes on and we will laugh again and play and celebrate our journey, but underneath there will be wisdom to know that this side of the rainbow is very temporary. To let go of what is impermanent is not to forget, it is to turn one’s attention to what is eternal. We used to think that when someone dies, they are absorbed into the universe. I believe now that they melt into those that love them.~

    Love Always, Julie XOXOXO
