Thank you so much for the privilege of reading Dispelling the Clouds.
What a wonderful gift you have so generously offered and continue to offer us who have been involved in the restorative justice community. Your willingness to both live with and articulate the hard questions of addressing and responding to the needs of those who have been impacted by crime and those who have been the instigators of crime has certainly propelled me in the work that I have engaged in , to ask different questions. You have been a role model and an inspiration.
It does not seem that long ago, now nearly a year, since you and Rene and Randy and I had dinner together in Winnipeg. The opportunity to sit with both you and Rene and later to see Candace House in person, were very much in my mind as I read through the book.
As always, all of my encounters with you either in person or via written word have been life changing.
Wilma. I am looking forward to being able to share Dispelling The Clouds once it is in print for the public!
