Be The Best.

The cursor blinks…

I’ve stared at a blinking cursor for the past 10 minutes.

Today I’ve been truly speechless, dumbfounded, heartbroken and completely bewildered…perhaps gobsmacked is the best word for it.

One of Chris’ buds in the inner Brookswood School circle of buds, was taken from this earth in a car accident last night.

This blog is not a news source.  The exceptionally sad details have been reported in The Sun amongst other sources.

Tonight we stand with the family including Dylan’s twin brother Jesse.

We have asked Chris to take special care of his friend today.  I know he will.

I have no answers, only questions.

Again, I really have just one thing.  The ability to make my next decision.

And with that we’ll stand with and support those who are grieving.

We’ll honour Dylan and all the goodness and fervor he lived his life with by continuing our journey to Be The Best.

Dylan, Jesse and the gang were kind enough to go on a hike with us just a few weeks ago.

We hugged each of the boys as we’ve done for over the past 20 months whenever we see them.

They all mean so very much to us.

Tonight or whenever you read this…please do me a favour.

Go hug your kids.

If they’re sleeping, give them a hug anyways.

Life is fragile.

Life is unfair many times.

Life is certainly unpredictable.

Dylan comes from an amazing family.  They are strong, giving and wonderful people.

Tonight, we stare at cursors…perhaps we curse at cursors, ask questions without answers…and then move our thoughts of support into action.

That’s all we can control.

Dylan…we luv ya.
