Mom, Jasanna, remembers Alistair: “We were at a restaurant one time before Christmas and after he was diagnosed where ‘firelog’ was playing on all the TVs. Alistair looks up at the screen and says ‘Jesus Christ, that movie is so boring.’ Funny guy!!
Another story of my sweet boy. While he was seriously ill at the end of his short life, he decided he wanted to go see The Little Prince with me. We could barely understand what he was saying at this point, but as we got his wheelchair strapped into the van at the Canuck Place children’s hospice, he turned to me and said ‘I’m doing this for you, mom.’ We watched the movie together while having to suction out his airways every couple minutes, and I cried knowing that this movie was his gift to me. I haven’t seen the movie again since, and look forward to remembering my little prince.”
Mom Jasanna, grama Gaydene, sisters Haeven and Samaya, uncle Timothy, and cousins Elwynn, Ngaio, Ruebee, and Hazel, want to share Alistair’s story because “he was such a great kid. Anyone who knew him told me how he made such an impact on their life. He should never be forgotten and hopefully his legacy will live on forever.”
