Prince was a ray of light and hope that shined through the dark cloud that has been hanging over my life since I met Luc. He was also very special to my entire family. This became very clear in how my six year old nephew has dealt with Prince’s death. My nephew, like Prince, has always been well beyond his years – like an older man trapped in a child’s body. During the wake, my nephew insisted on seeing Prince in the casket. While initially we all believed this would be a bad idea, he insisted and continued to ask to see him until he was allowed.
