Jamie's dry wit and unassuming nature will be sorely missed
When I was 21 and preparing for my 2nd Ride to Conquer Cancer, I wrote the following :
“Personally, I have been almost too lucky to believe. My family has had limited run-ins with Cancer”
Now, I’m getting set to take part in my 8th RTCC from Vancouver to Seattle. Personally, I haven’t been diagnosed – but my Dad has lost two brothers in the past 3 years to Lung Cancer. My uncle Dan left us in 2014, and more recently, uncle Jamie. Lest we forget that they lost their father Jim, my grandfather, to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma a few decades ago.
This is why I ride, year after year. I will stubbornly carry on, because I truly believe in what the BC Cancer Foundation is doing. Please consider donating to my ride to show that you do too.
. . .
My 2017 Ride to Conquer Cancer is dedicated to Uncle Jamie, Uncle Dan, Grandma Rosemary, Deb, Dad, each and every Devine sibling and offspring.
Two celebrations were held for Jamie - one in Winnipeg where he grew up, and one in North Vancouver where he lived for most of his life. My dad spoke in Winnipeg, and had the honour of reciting his words for the North Vancouver contingent. To say the least, that was a spiritual moment.
“Jamie's dry wit and unassuming nature will be sorely missed…”
