This past Sunday I had a great deal for which to be grateful. It could have been a sad day. It was the unveiling of my son, Darren’s, memorial monument. I was surrounded by the love of my husband, children, family, Bancroft family, and dear friends. We celebrated his wonderful life. Then came back to our home to eat and play, Darren’s two favorite activities. The water balloons were a big hit! Thank you everyone for helping me get through these past months. They say that grief transforms you. This is so true. I experience life so much more fully with so much more compassion and acceptance. I miss him everyday but I also know that I must honor is goodness and life by helping others learn and experience their goodness and worth.
Darren and I are still quite a team as we were when he graced this earth. I know that he will help me find the ways to create emotionally safer environments for children and adults alike. He was an emotionally intelligent person with disabilities who touched so many. His legacy of kindness, strength and courage lives on. Please help me share the importance of teaching emotional intelligence to our children to help stop the bullying. This was my dream for many years. Yet, Darren taught me how to be a Creator of Joy. His take on life…liked it? Loved it!!!
