Five years ago today I said goodbye to Rehtaeh for the last time. I picked her up from an appointment with a counsellor and drove her home to her mom’s house in Cole Harbour. The trip took about twenty minutes and I replay it in my head always.
I’m so grateful her last words to me were “I love you dad.” As am I grateful my last words to her were the same, “I love you Rae.”
I thought she was going to be okay.
I thought she beat this demon.
