My only child died, but I’ll always be a mother

“My first Mother’s Day without my daughter fell seven months after her death. India, my only child, died at 16, after a six-year battle with a devastating neurodegenerative disease so rare, we were only given a name for it six months before it took her life. My husband, Mark, and I were driving through the Chicago area that first Mother’s Day. We were on a pilgrimage of sorts, dedicated to our daughter. Inside my purse, in a red Chinese embroidered bag, were 16 handmade colourful glass beads, each containing a pinch of India’s cremated remains.”

“The monument, across from the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic and just down from the Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, lists more than 600 names, with many surnames repeated, etched on three-sided stone columns. It’s a powerful reminder of the deadly toll suffered in one profession in one town. Such memorials dot the towns throughout the South Shore. Not everyone is a fan. ‘I don’t like them,’ says Stewart Franck, who led the Fisheries Safety Association of Nova Scotia from 2011 to his retirement in July. ‘They leave spaces for names to be added.'”
