A Grey Day

The sky is dark and gloomy today, a member of the RCMP lost his life yesterday in the line of Duty here in Nunavut, in a community not far from ours.
Story Here
A few members here had the chance to know him in life. My greatest sympathies go out to his family, friends and fellow members.
I will remember you often
You will not be forgotten
Because you lost your life
Fighting for all things right
A voice telling me to cherish
God forbid my husband perish
A job to serve and protect
For this you have my respect
I will remember you often

You will not be forgotten

It is a tough time. I have been talking to all the members wives here in town to see how they are making out. I saw his picture, and he just looks so young. It is pretty upsetting. I hope you are doing okay.

Was thinking about you today. Hope you are doing okay with the news of Doug's death.

Kara and Clare,
Thank you for your concern. I didn't know Doug personally, but Nathan, as well as another member here worked with him. It really puts life into perspective. I don't think until today I fully respected the dangers Nathan and other members put their lives in everyday. I feel so terrible for his family.
