The Trip You Don’t Want to Take

Fernie, BC

Fernie, BC

Not all trips are for fun. I would rather go to Fernie, BC for any other reason than a funeral, but that’s why I’m here. My boyfriend’s much-loved brother, Ralph Allan Simpson, just had a tragic motorcycle accident in the Crow’s Nest Pass and I’ve left Whistler to join Mark (my boyfriend) and his family. 

A skier, wind surfer, mountain biker, loving husband and father, and owner of the Ski Base, a sporting goods store, Ralph was obviously well loved in the community, because it seemed half the town was at the funeral this afternoon.
