Yesterday we said goodbye to my cousin. He *was* a vibrant, loving, kind soul, who is clearly and definitely gone to soon. He suffered with mental illness, as do I. We both live(d) with Bipolar. He was diagnosed about a decade ago and I almost a year ago. 

My cousin's service was so full of well wishes, accolades, family memories, friendships and experiences. 

Many friendships were strengthened, families reconnected, emotions shared.

I learned from my Uncle that on April 28/12 there is an event in Sean's Memory that I am going to be going to. It is called Mindcheck (

Mindcheck's purpose is to encourage the early detection and intervention of mental health and substance issues in British Columbian teens and young adults. 

As I said to my Uncle yesterday as I hugged him, "I'm not going anywhere" and I meant it.
