Moving through the initial shock of Brad’s passing, I was responsible for considering what needed to be attended at his work given his loss. This past week I heard scores of remembrances and tributes to Brad from colleagues within and outside the organization. I listened to and responded to voices messages from patients he was working with and called others to plan for their care going forward. Signature qualities of Brad that I already knew, were amplified ten fold by the stories I heard. Deeply generous and compassionate to those being harmed by their substance use, while also maintaining clarity of the need to invite, support and challenge people to step into responsibility for their own lives, understanding no one else could. Creative, playful, enjoying opportunities to “take the stage” and help colleagues, evidenced in his baking, sharing of treats, approaches to presentations and group facilitation, and retreat planning. A way of walking in the world that was often private, sprinkled with a quick wit that could be any combination of cynical, sarcastic, ironic or just plan funny. In all his complexity and all his beauty, Brad contributed much to those who have known as a counsellor, colleague, friend over the 11 years he worked at the Hamilton Family Health Team. Many will carry his impact forward in the lives, and he will be remembered.
