Jay has left a huge hole in our lives. As a father and husband, he was a bundle of energy, a fountain of love and caring, a tour de force, the centre-point of our family life. There were moments during his sickness and after his death when we despaired that there would ever be life after death – not for him but for us. Though still in the midst of this journey, I will share some of the emotional downs and ups of our story of recovery, as well as some of the customs and rituals of my indigenous heritage that are helping us gradually bounce back. I will also be providing a glimpse of the model of resilience that has inspired our journey. Though the hole that bears his shape will probably never go away, I am now beginning to see the fruit of resilience in our lives. I am pleased for the opportunity to share what I have learned about resilience on this journey.
