On the anniversary of his death, we gathered his family together in Maine and on Prince Edward Island.
Summertime in Maine is so very beautiful. We are blessed with spaciousness and the ability to spend abundant time in Nature, create art, and nurture our spiritual practices. Here, we are able to Live Life as a Prayer.

Our son Riley would be 23 years old today. There are no words to describe the emotions we collectively, and individually, feel from moment to moment, let alone on milestone days like today. Immense gratitude to our Aunt for creating this video montage for Riley’s birthday.
We love and miss you so much Riley. You are forever loved. Always remembered.

This excerpt video of Twinkle’s Anam Ċara & the Divine Echo sermon was delivered at Starr King UU Fellowship last year on October 6th, 2019 just two weeks after Twinkle’s son died tragically. The sentiment of this sermon is timeless and relevant to this moment when so many are experiencing deep grief.
“For some believe it is the hard times that make us stronger….I don’t believe that so much… I believe it is the good we are wrapped up in while facing hard times
that help us carry our broken pieces: The love of our family, our friends, our community, these are what make us stronger,
keep us whole when our hearts are shattered,
keep us moving forward. This good is the beloved community we all seek to belong to.“
