If you've read this blog for long, you'll know this is our first Christmas without Will, our oldest son, the water bomber pilot. But in spite of the intense sorrow we feel at times, in between there are things we are thankful for. Above all we are thankful for Will's big gang of very good friends.
We are incredibly grateful to Will's friends for something so special. And we are more than grateful for the support all his friends have shown us, including several who we will probably be friends with ourselves for life now. We hadn't seen the gang of high school friends for most of 20 years, and we had never met the group in B.C. But they have reached out to us in so many ways, and it's been an enormous support. Karin, the artist, has a website under the name 'Wip Custom Signs' if you're interested.
