I wasn’t ready to say goodbye. The negative and tragic impact of using violence. Why am I Here?. In 2008, my fiancée was brutally murdered right in front of me as a direct result of alcohol abuse and fighting in youth. Before Martyn.

I used to lye in my bed, and imagine my life. I thought about every last detail of my fairytale life.........I thought about you
I can’t explain our relationship, It was dramatic and passionate and amazing, people on the outside looking in never understood, but it didn’t matter. The intensity of our love was scary, the pace at which it happened—even scarier! Looking back now, I know it was because it would be over before I knew it.
Martyn and I built a life together, we had our routines, breakfast, cleaning the bathroom, walking the dog’s….it was life. It wasn’t exceptional, or glamorous…but it was WONDERFUL. We always seemed to find adventure in our relationship, what other’s might have called “disasters “ are moments I now treasure as the happiest I can remember being.
Martyn died of blunt force trauma in the Health and science centre in Winnipeg MB that morning as the result of being attacked by 5 teenagers. The last time I held Martyn’s hand he had no idea, there was no good bye, no breakup and he was gone forever.
