Remembering Greg Cope
To The Editor,
On August 17, there was a memorial on Bowen Island for Gregory Clive Cope, a man whose memory brought together a very large number of people of great diversity - a fitting testimony to a life which transcended any differences we might perceive among us.
Above all, beyond a life fully lived in every respect, Greg united all of us that day because of what we simply felt when we were in his gentle, calm and peaceful presence. Beyond any words or activities we might have shared with him, we always knew that we were in the presence of a man with an authentic, remarkable quality of heart, full of kindness and positive energy. He gave us all the precious gift of being fully human, and he showed us that the face of that humanity is love.
I know I speak for his friends who were at the memorial and many others who could not attend in extending our warmest and deepest sympathies to his wife Coral, to his children and to all the members of his family.
To his family and to all of us who are his friends, Greg will always be in our hearts - hearts ever grateful for being made whole and for being put to rest in his graceful presence.
