This is a memory board of my son, Shane. He died in a car accident, at the age of 23, on July 4th of 2017. He was a good son, sweet and kind with a great smile. His death left a permanent scar on my heart. To help me with the grieving process, I met a wonderful counselor, Dina. She suggested making a memory board of Shane. I love pictures and I had lots. I couldn’t wait. I collected pictures and personal items of his. Our session began, with supplies in hand, and Kimberley’s guidance, and Dina’s encouragement, the board began to take shape. It was a very emotional process. The memories were almost unbearable. Everything about the board tells a story. His passions in life. Hockey, drumming, skateboarding, the outdoors and people. It shows his peaceful nature, his acceptance of all that is life. His ever present smile, that beautiful bright smile! Kimberley gave me the opportunity to create a lasting memory of my son. This experience was very rewarding and therapeutic . The memory board is one of my most treasured items. I look at it everyday, just reminding myself of the life he had and how much he was loved and how much he is missed. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Kimberley!
