It is boxing day and that means I leave Canada in a weeks time. Not two days ago I learnt about a young man’s death.. Justin Buzzard did not survive an accident, he was found on Christmas Eve. This is something his family and closest friends must deal with every year at the holidays and it is something I cannot even imagine dealing with. Justin was such a happy guy that was always smiling… I believe he is still smiling. This is the first time there has been a death of someone that I personally have memories and good times with and it is hard to think about him not being around anymore, Justin and I weren’t even as close as others were to him, but it’s still absolutely tragic and devastating to me. I’m thinking of his family and friends and I pray that they know he is watching over them now. This has taught me that all the presents and money in the world don’t matter, all you need is the people that matter most in your life! Just love them and cherish them. Don’t take any of the little things for granted. This is such an important lesson for me before I go on my trip.
Rest in Peace Justin 1991 – 2011 ❤
