Grieve With Us


















Jacquie, Gilbert, and I did Sheldon’s obituary and it is in the Winnipeg Free Press today. Please read it and grieve with us that this most magical young man is no longer physically present in the world.

Sheldon Bouchard
May 31, 1984 – September 18, 2009

It is with deep sadness that we who loved him most announce the passing of our son and brother.

Remaining to forever cherish Sheldon’s memory are his parents Jacquie and Gilbert Bouchard; his siblings Ben (Chrisy) and Jennifer (Paul); nephews and nieces Brett, Jeff, Luke, Kayla, Grace, and Brady. He also leaves to mourn his grandmothers Daisy and Lil and his many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Sheldon is predeceased by his grandfather Henri with whom he is currently sitting on a park bench with.

Sheldon had the best laugh you have ever heard. Sheldon loved to laugh and he loved to make others laugh. He was kind and polite and had a spirit that could make the galaxy look small.

Sheldon loved deeply, thought keenly, felt intensely and suffered beautifully. Sheldon showed us all what the true meaning of grace under fire meant.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, September 25, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. at Holy Family Parish on Archibald Road.

Private family reception to follow.

Just perfect and beautiful, Renee. I am grieving with you over the loss of Sheldon. The world is poorer for having lost him. Love, Hugs and Blessings, dear friend---

Dear Renee,

I'm so very sorry about Sheldon. That seems inadequate and it is. From his picture I can see his kindness. All those things you talked about. Such a loss. God Bless him and you and your family. Your last post about his appearances is still making me cry. Hugs, my dear. xo Barbara

What a beautiful soul and spirit! I am heartbroken for you, Jacquie, Gilbert and the rest of your family! It is obvious that you all love deeply and that love will carry you through this tragedy! All my love to all of you, Silke

Angela Recada said...

Dearest Renee,

Yes, I grieve with you for this handsome and exceptional young man who was called home too soon. Your tribute to him is beautiful, as beautiful as mere words can be. For mere words cannot capture the essence of such a beautiful soul.

My thoughts are with you and your loved ones, dear heart.

Love,
xoxoxo

Thank you for posting his photo - I love seeing his face! What a beautiful young man.

Renee, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. If anything good can come from a tragedy such as this, it's that it's a reminder that tomorrow is not promised, and we should live every moment in the present.

Big hug to you.

That was beautiful, Sheldon is beautiful. I wish I could go to his service, but I know it will be packed to the rafters and we will all be there in spirit. Love and prayers and hugs and kisses.

studio lolo said...

To finally see his face makes this so much more real for me.
I couldn't read this without crying. It was so beautifully written. He embodied so much in such a short time on this earth.

Love and blessings to you and the family and to all that loved him.
It seems anyone who knew him had been given a rare gift for the past 25 years. May we all learn from his grace and the way he embraced life and it's challenges.

~Peace and love~

Allegra Smith said...

I will not grieve with you. I will celebrate the fact that you all got to know him and to love him. I will pray that nothing but sweet memories filled your days of grieving and that for each tear there be smiles to balance the sadness.

I know, having lost my entire birth family the missing parts of the soul that will go missing no matter what, and yet I also know that those who are loved after they are gone they are never truly gone from one's side. Sheldon will never be far away from you when he lives in your heart.

Love to you all and specially to you,

Allegra

Vera said...

I wasn't going to leave a comment as I didn't know what to say Renee, so what I did do was make a focus on this young man, and for a few minutes asked that his spirit be blessed on its onward journey.

Mim said...

oh my goodness, he is such a wonderful looking man - someone you could love and trust. Oh Renee - my heart grieves for you all.

Yoli said...

I am so deeply sorry for this loss. I do not know him but through your words, it seems that the world has had a great loss. My thoughts are with his family and all of those that will miss him terribly.

Sue said...

Renee, I am so sad to read this (and your previous posts). Sheldon was an exemplary young man and I can only imagine how much he will be missed.

My heart breaks for you, Jacquie and his family and friends. I hope that your memories of him will, in time, offer you comfort.

Love,

Sue

Sheldon the beautiful spirit child. Both here, and now there.

Sometimes the angel's work here is finished much too soon to suit us, but is the plan for their (and our) greater good.
Thank you Sheldon, for who you are, and for your shining example to all of us.

A Son's Love

A Son's Love is never lost
It stays right in the heart.

All you do is think of him
And you’re not that far apart

So grieve you must its part of life
It’s something we must do

Then take a breath and look within
He’s there inside of you

His smile, laugh and things he did
You see him standing there

His angel kiss you feel the touch
It breezes through your hair

So go outside and then look up
For that is where he’ll be

The promise of the Son it shines
For all of us you see.

Find Peace and comfort as he rests
He’s walking hand in hand

With loved ones that have gone before
They’re in the glory land.

He’s waiting there, you see, right now
He’s just behind that cloud

Close your eyes and listen well
It’s his kind voice aloud:

The song within the birds you hear
And babbling of the brook.

So be at Peace and go within
He’s there just take a look.

Many Blessings be upon you now
And with your family

For God did promise with the Son
We’d meet in Calvary

Written with Love and Light, by Nina P.

Rob-bear said...

Don't see my other comments, so I'll re-share some thoughts.

What beautiful words you have written today, in remembering Sheldon.

You are all flowers blooming in adversity.

And some words from a prayer I use at Funerals and Memorials Services. "As you, God, did not lose Sheldon in sharing him with us, so we have not lost him in his return to you."

Blessings and courage in this difficult time.

TheChicGeek said...

Beautiful words for a beautiful young man with a beautiful spirit. My prayers are with you all right now.

kj said...

a time when blogging fails me. i would be sitting in the holy family parish paying my respects and admiration if only i could. i would be reaching my arms toward you and holding you long and tight, my dearest moon sister, and i would whisper to you that sheldon will never really be gone.

and i would tell jacquie that i understand as if it were my jessica.

i would bring you hot biscuits and blueberry muffins in a basket with a card that said, 'i love you dearly renee.'

thank you so much for this picture of sheldon. it is imprinted in my mind now and i will see him whenever i pray. this is a time when i wish i had held on to my catholic prayers.

Peachtreeart said...

The bible teaches that "no resident will say: 'I am sick.'" Isaiah 33:24. That day will come!

Dawn said...

Beautiful words, Sheldon sounds like the kind of person who had many friends who loved him, I am sure he will be greatly missed. I imagine him sitting on that bench talking to his grandfather about what you are all doing now without their physical presence - but like those birds he is there, he is looking out for you all now.
I pray for you all xxx I shall work out the time difference so that I can take time out of my day to think of you all saying goodbye xxxx

Will be thinking of you and your family tomorrow, wishing you all strength and love.

Ces said...

I came to mourn with you my dearest friend.

I shall remember this of Sheldon. When asked if he was ready to die he replied "I am but my family is not." What family wants to let go of a good member?

"When he was transferred to the palliative care unit he joked about being sent to the die. He was half joking, wasn't he? I will try to remember that when I am faced with a struggle where I magnify it's enormity and left paralized with pain and sorrow yet I have the chance to live another day and correct my mistakes. Sheldon did not have another chance yet he never lost his honor and dignity and sense of humor.

He was witty, sharp, intelligent.

He was tender, gentle, caring and most loving.

I am bound to believe that during the last days of his life, Sheldon totally gave up all self love and offered it to spare his family added pain and sorrow.

What an irony. Some people live many years and when one tries to read their lives, they cannot make anything substancial from it, no sense at all.

Then there is Sheldon. I have never seen more courage, more regal bearing, more dignity, more love in someone so young as he said goodbye to his loved ones.

I know what to call someone like Sheldon - angel.

Thank you my dearest Sheldon!

Annie said...

Renee, I will be there tomorrow, in spirit as will Sheldon. Love and hugs.

Lisa said...

I have been out of town and am just seeing this. My thoughts and tons of love are with you. I do grieve with you. Yet, I feel a joy to know that he was in this world and filled your lives with laughter and love.

"A spirit that could make the galaxy look small".

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

To see his face, to read your words...somehow made me sigh in a peaceful way...knowing now your warrior is at rest. He would want you to heal and be at peace, too.

Tessa said...

I send all my loving comfort, Renee, from the very heart of me. This is for Sheldon, for you, and for your family.

Sheldon

He is a thousand winds that blow.
He is the diamond glint on snow.
He is the sunlight on ripened grain.
He is the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in morning's hush
He is the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
He is the starshine of the night.

Clarity said...

Dear Renee,

My love and my hugs go out to you and Jacquie and Gilbert.

My heart fell at your comment and I am touched that you would think that. I think he would have made me laugh and I love all the beautiful qualities describing him. If I might add, he was also blessed, with a beautiful, loving and supportive family that not many find in this lifetime. There is a life beyond this and I pray you are all reunited happily.

With love dear, peace, xxx.

kendalee said...

A beautiful young man with a beautiful spirit, which clearly lives on in your hearts, and on that bench with his beloved grandfather... and in all the hearts in the blogging world that he has touched, even at a distance. A remarkable life. Thinking of you and your family Renee ♥ K

Renee, this is beyond comprehension. Why someone so young, so loving and so loved is taken, we will not understand until the time we join him. My heart breaks for you and Sheldon's family. May Sheldon rest in peace, and may the family take comfort in knowing that one day, everyone will be reunited.
Much love to you.

Hi to Sheldon...I hope your heaven is wonderful. Maybe you will see my Grandmother there-she is a wonderful person. I hope all your pain has dissapeared and that you are able to smile and have fun-Please watch over your loved ones here on earth, and help them to not miss you toooo much. If I could hug Renee for you, I would, but I am too far away, so please send her a giant hug in some form-she misses you. Can't wait to meet you someday Sheldon-
Love, Kelly
