We wish to extend deepest condolences to fellow Dot member Yvon, for the recent loss of her son, Nick, who passed away on 19 June 2011. We received the following message from Yvon on 27 June 2011, and are posting this on her behalf, with her permission:
Two police officers came to our house to tell the terrible news and we were asked to identify our son. That was so shocking and confronting to find our son lying in a mortuary, after he had left our house in such a good mood the evening before.
The cremation has been last Saturday. Although very emotional and sad it also had something beautiful. We've created a very personal ceremony, many photos of our son's life were shown, and a lot of music was played; music that he liked and also Michael's. Of course Nick knew about my love for Michael and he understood it.
Nick was very musical himself and was the drummer in a band. The other band members have been playing some music at the ceremony, one of them had written a song especially for our son, which was so beautiful and came right out of his heart.
These two days we've been trying to make a kind of start to get back to 'normal' life. We still can't believe what's happening and we realize that it will take a very long time to get used to this new situation. We are missing him every minute. And yes, we're telling ourselves and each other all the time that Nick is with the angels in heaven now. I'm praying that Michael will be taking care of him.
