Colin and Patricia,
I had just learned yesterday night the pain you and your family had gone through since last June 2013. I had learned through Colin how magnificent of a son Stephen was and still is. My prayers are with you and your family as you pass through this very difficult phase in your life. I am sure Stephen is watching all of you and will always remember the love and kindness you had guided and protected him growing up.
Dearest Colin, you are a great dad. What you had done for Stephen while he was in Montreal is very loving. Not many dads would have done what you had committed to in ensuring Stephen always goes and comes back from university safely.
Pat, Colin and Shawn, Stephen's love for each one of you will never diminish but will forever strengthen your will to move on because this is what your son would want from the family that had really taken good care of him on earth. Stephen is now in a peaceful place. He would also want his family to have peace in their hearts too.
So sorry to hear about the tragic loss of Stephen's life.
On behalf of my beautiful son Stephen, I'd like to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support provided to our family during this difficult time. I know you loved Stephen just as much as we did and we hope the memories of times you shared with him provides you with comfort. I thank you for being his friend,for sharing his life and for honouring his memory. May he continue to spread his amazing love and protect us all with his caring spirit.
Rest in peace my darling. You'll live forever in our hearts.
Dearest Pat, I can't imagine the hurt and pain that you, Colin and Shawn are experiencing at this time.
My heart felt sympathy goes out to you and your family. I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Please take comfort from your friends and family to help you through this extremely difficult time.
Much love, Shanta (Pickering)
