Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • Darlene and Ron, I am terribly sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what you could be going through but find comfort in knowing that your son had a huge impact on many people's lives. And he definitely lived life to the fullest. I spent a great chunk of my life with Leyland and I can say that none of it was boring. Leyland always had something going on on. Some new idea, some place to go, something to do. In the time I spent with him I learnt a lot. Leyland was a fighter when we was mad but an absolute lover when he was loving. From the times we spent camping out beside the lake, to endless weekends at the cabin. Catching tons of fish at our spot "solay Rock" or getting the quad full of mud. We had so many good laughs and so many good memories. He took me on my first trip from Winnipeg right to Vancouver. Leyland loved to see other people happy I remember when we got to the mountains instead of looking at how beautiful they were he watched the expressions on my face as it was glued to the window. He liked to be able to show people things and explore and make people happy. I'll always remember our good memories. Leyland thank you, for being my first love, for showing me what it was to love a person and be driven absolutely crazy by that same person all the while, having some of the best times of my life also with that same person. How to forgive and to move forward. We learnt so much from each other and I am so glad that we got to rise above all of our issues and be friends. Although we haven't talked much anymore I am so thankful for the last time I got to see you. To be able to just sit and have a beer and talk about our lives. I know your in a better place. And i know you'll be watching down on all your family and friends. You'll forever have a special place in my heart. Until we meet again love you Lay. - Posted by: Sondra ((Friend)) on: Oct 25, 2017

  • My sincerest condolences, I find it hard to express the depth of my sadness. To Darlene and Ron, thank you for giving us this amazing, funny, caring, smart , mischivious guy. Leyland was so unique, his energy and determination was unwavering. He showed me so much in our short time together, so thank you for sharing your boy with me. I am truly grateful for having him in my life, the good and the bad times, We learned so much from eachother... im sorry I couldn't do more to help him :( To his family and friends.... He was apart of some of my best memories, so I can understand the light that may be missing now from your lives. I hope u find comfort in the time you did spend and the memories made. I find comfort in looking at how Leyland lived and how much life and adventure he packed into these all too short years... i will remember him fondly and never forget him....especially his love of architecture. He could tell you what major city you were looking at just by the skyline or monuments.... such an interesting soul. Leyland, you are in a better place, I miss you everyday, ill try not to hold on to this pain very long because I know "Nothing gold can stay" Love you bud, till we meet again, stay looking out, Rest in Paradis. - Posted by: Kobe (Friend ) on: Oct 24, 2017

  • You will be missed cuz ik you will be looking down on us ur friends and family I’m sorry this happened to his family - Posted by: Cory (Cousin) on: Oct 14, 2017

  • It is very hard to know what to say when such a young man gets taken from his family. I knew Leyland to be a young man full of life and love. Love for many things including his family , fishing, snow-boarding and much more. I wish there was something I could say to ease the sorrow....but words just don't measure up at all. My heart breaks for Leyland's family and friends. Please accept my condolences. He will be forever in our hearts. - Posted by: Wendy Charette (Friend) on: Oct 13, 2017

  • Leyland, it hasn't even been a week since we lost you and it already seems like a lifetime. I can't believe I will never get to see you and chat with you again. But we will meet again some day, and right now you are up there with some very special people. To my sister (your mother) Darlene, my heart breaks for you, I don't know what to say, there are no words. He will always be in my heart, he was a very special little boy who grew up into a great young man. - Posted by: Gail Charette (Aunt) on: Oct 12, 2017
