Now We Know

I came back from lunch and everyone stared at me. The phone rang. It was my husband. He asked if I had seen the news - Macleans magazine in particular. I had just picked up a copy because there was an article about Brandon. He said, "No, the website." He told me hunters found a body they believed to be that of my nephew Brandon Crisp.

Mary drove me home from work, and Mark's co-workers drove him home. Mary and I caught my son Andrew walking home, and we quickly picked him up and brought him home.

I have to drive to Oakville to get my daughter in college. Then we'll go to Barrie to be with Brandon's parents.

That's all I can say for now. I'll update you later.

Thanks again for all your support. I truly love you all.

Everyone who is a parents recognizes the horrible situation.

Reach out. People who wish they could give all of you a hug.
Ask if you need something.
There are many people out there who can help. Bereavement is a difficult and individual response to grief. Do what you need to do for yourself and your family.

Blessings from Muskoka.

Thank you all.

We spent the day with Brandon's family today, with hugs and tears.

There were so many flowers, so much food, so many cards. Barrie is a caring, loving city. Every citizen should be proud.

Counselors visited and met with each member of the family.

Hugs to all.
