    May you find strength and solace during this difficult time. Ian was such a beautiful soul. We had such a short time together, but his impact will last for generations. We share your pain. My deepest condolences from my entire family to yours. I adored that man. I thought of him often. I always will. God speed my friend. He spoke French with my daughter on a sunny day on our deck this summer. He was so gentle guiding her and comforting. It’s was the most beautiful memory I have of him.

    à tout le monde, à tous mes amis, je vous aime, je dois partir. Now you are set free.

    I love you, Until we meet again my friend.

  84. Megan Westgarth:
    Nov 11, 2023 at 10:47 AM

    Dear Bishop Family,

    I’m heartbroken to hear of Ian’s passing. He was a kind, caring and loving man.

    He was like a brother to Robyn; a permanent fixture in the Westgarth household. His love for Preston was evident - it was only fitting he’d be chosen as his Godfather.

    In the months leading up to his passing, Ian and I became very close. He would stop over at Robyn’s when I was babysitting and we would talk about life, his struggles and his dreams. One thing that was always clear: He loved you all very much and wanted so bad to be “normal.”

    I’m so sorry you are all going through this heartache. No parent should out live their child and no sibling should have their time cut short with one another.

    Please know that we are here for you all. Steve, having lost a brother suddenly, I remember the pain; the feeling that there’s a piece of your heart that is missing.

    Jackie and Pat, my dad and mom know what it’s like to get the call that no parent ever wants to receive.

    Because of the special friendship that Ian and Robyn shared, you all have become like family to us as well, so please, never hesitate to call us. We want to honour your time to grieve as a family, but will be here if/when you're ready.

    Sending you all our deepest love and sympathy during this extraordinary terrible time.

    Love,

    The Westgarths

    Bishop Family,

    I have thought over and over about the words to write to you during this time. I can not imagine your grief and I hope somehow you find comfort in the words of people who love Ian and care for you

    As many have said- and it speaks to who he was. Ian was so gentle. He was loving, kind and tender hearted.

    There are no hugs that can ever match his embrace and squeeze (and hugs that led to a pick up and twirl around). His twinkly eyes/ that first big burst of laughter he’d have when something hit him that was funny.

    He wore his heart on his sleeve. He spoke to me always with an open mind and without judgement. He talked about the people that meant so much to him and how proud he was of their accomplishments. An admirable characteristic that not many possess

    When we were younger on a band trip he found an injured squirrel he’d brought into his room to care for. That’s who he was and that’s who we loved so deeply - who else would ever think to do such a thing.

    He came to my home a few weeks ago and I have replayed that over and over in my mind. I could see he was hurting. I am angry that I let so much time go in-between that contact. But I am so grateful that he pushed himself to be here despite his hurt inside. It felt that no time had passed between us and I will hold onto that last embrace/ that big burst of laughter and I love you forever.

    Dear Pat, Jacquie, and Stephen,
    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of Ian. I was out of the country or I would have been at the funeral.

    I only knew Ian as a child. He was one of the sweetest and most personable kids I’d ever met. He was always ready for a conversation with the adults on the court. One thing I remember particularly is how he loved to go over to the “pond” to catch little critters. He had snakes, frogs and whatever else he could find.
    I also remember he and Stephen babysitting our boys who were younger.

    I pray for you all at this difficult time and hope Ian is at peace.
    Love,
    Gail and Pat Lawrence.
